I want you to know that most of the fun life lessons you are going to learn will come from your mother.
Today I took Sakura to a Halloween dog competition. Your mom took Sakura to a Halloween party. We went to the exact same place at exact the same time.
On the drive home I told our dog what she should have done to win. I explained that jumping on the judges did not help. Sakura didn’t say anything. She just kept quiet and smiled. She was really happy. She saw a lot of other dogs and had a really good time. I am sure today was her favourite day this whole week.
Not everything in life is a competition. Maybe first place would cost Sakura her happiness. She really likes to say hello to everyone and would not really enjoy being in her best behaviour just to get a little trophy.
You can learn a lot from Sakura.
