What beautiful weather we have at the moment! Love seeing dogs playing at the beach and enjoying parks. I do get concerned though when i see dogs getting walked during the hottest times of the day especially on pavements,roads and even sand as this can seriously harm dogs paws. Please remember dogs don't have shoes and their pads on their paws do feel pain . Here is a helpful tip for people to help understand what their dog is dealing with walking around on concrete during these hot days. Here is a helpful summer tip for you to help your dog. Be wise when you exercise!
Raag Soohee, Third Mehl, First House, Ashtapadees: One Universal Creator God. By The Grace Of The True Guru: Everything comes from the Naam, the Name of the Lord; without the True Guru, the Naam is not experienced.The Word of the Guru's Shabad is the sweetest and most sublime essence, but without tasting it, its flavor cannot be experienced.He wastes this human life in exchange for a mere shell; he does not understand his own self.But, if he becomes Gurmukh, then he comes to know the One Lord, and the disease of egotism does not afflict him. ||1||I am a sacrifice to my Guru, who has lovingly attached me to the True Lord.Concentrating on the Word of the Shabad, the soul is illumined and enlightened. I remain absorbed in celestial ecstasy. ||1||Pause||The Gurmukh sings the Praises of the Lord; the Gurmukh understands. The Gurmukh contemplates the Word of the Shabad.Body and soul are totally rejuvenated through the Guru; the Gurmukh's affairs are resolved in his favor.The blind self-willed manmukh acts blindly, and earns only poison in this world.Enticed by Maya, he suffers in constant pain, without the most Beloved Guru. ||2||He alone is a selfless servant, who serves the True Guru, and walks in harmony with the True Guru's Will.The True Shabad, the Word of God, is the True Praise of God; enshrine the True Lord within your mind.The Gurmukh speaks the True Word of Gurbani, and egotism departs from within.He Himself is the Giver, and True are His actions. He proclaims the True Word of the Shabad. ||3||The Gurmukh works, and the Gurmukh earns; the Gurmukh inspires others to chant the Naam.He is forever unattached, imbued with the Love of the True Lord, intuitively in harmony with the Guru.The self-willed manmukh always tells lies; he plants the seeds of poison, and eats only poison.He is bound and gagged by the Messenger of Death, and burnt in the fire of desire; who can save him, except the Guru? ||4||True is that place of pilgrimage, where one bathes in the pool of Truth, and achieves self-realization as Gurmukh. The Gurmukh understands his own self.The Lord has shown that the Word of the Guru's Shabad is the sixty-eight sacred shrines of pilgrimage; bathing in it, filth is washed away.True and Immaculate is the True Word of His Shabad; no filth touches or clings to Him.True Praise, True Devotional Praise, is obtained from the Perfect Guru. ||5||Body, mind, everything belongs to the Lord; but the evil-minded ones cannot even say this.If such is the Hukam of the Lord's Command, then one becomes pure and spotless, and the ego is taken away from within.I have intuitively tasted the Guru's Teachings, and the fire of my desire has been quenched.Attuned to the Word of the Guru's Shabad, one is naturally intoxicated, merging imperceptibly into the Lord. ||6||The Name of the Lord is known as True, through the Love of the Beloved Guru.True Glorious Greatness is obtained from the Guru, through the Beloved True Name.The One True Lord is permeating and pervading among all; how rare is the one who contemplates this.The Lord Himself unites us in Union, and forgives us; He embellishes us with true devotional worship. ||7||All is Truth; Truth, and Truth alone is pervading; how rare is the Gurmukh who knows this.Birth and death occur by the Hukam of His Command; the Gurmukh understands his own self.He meditates on the Naam, the Name of the Lord, and so pleases the True Guru. He receives whatever rewards he desires.O Nanak, one who eradicates self-conceit from within, has everything. ||8||1||

Dhanaasaree, First Mehl, Second House, Ashtapadees: One Universal Creator God. By The Grace Of The True Guru: The Guru is the ocean, filled with pearls.The Saints gather in the Ambrosial Nectar; they do not go far away from there.They taste the subtle essence of the Lord; they are loved by God.Within this pool, the swans find their Lord, the Lord of their souls. ||1||What can the poor crane accomplish by bathing in the mud puddle?It sinks into the mire, and its filth is not washed away. ||1||Pause||After careful deliberation, the thoughtful person takes a step.Forsaking duality, he becomes a devotee of the Formless Lord.He obtains the treasure of liberation, and enjoys the sublime essence of the Lord.His comings and goings end, and the Guru protects him. ||2||The swan do not leave this pool.In loving devotional worship, they merge in the Celestial Lord.The swans are in the pool, and the pool is in the swans.They speak the Unspoken Speech, and they honor and revere the Guru's Word. ||3||The Yogi, the Primal Lord, sits within the celestial sphere of deepest Samaadhi.He is not male, and He is not female; how can anyone describe Him?The three worlds continue to center their attention on His Light.The silent sages and the Yogic masters seek the Sanctuary of the True Lord. ||4||The Lord is the source of bliss, the support of the helpless.The Gurmukhs worship and contemplate the Celestial Lord.God is the Lover of His devotees, the Destroyer of fear.Subduing ego, one meets the Lord, and places his feet on the Path. ||5||He makes many efforts, but still, the Messenger of Death tortures him.Destined only to die, he comes into the world.He wastes this precious human life through duality.He does not know his own self, and trapped by doubts, he cries out in pain. ||6||Speak, read and hear of the One Lord.The Support of the earth shall bless you with courage, righteousness and protection.Chastity, purity and self-restraint are infused into the heart,when one centers his mind in the fourth state. ||7||They are immaculate and true, and filth does not stick to them.Through the Word of the Guru's Shabad, their doubt and fear depart.The form and personality of the Primal Lord are incomparably beautiful.Nanak begs for the Lord, the Embodiment of Truth. ||8||1||

English Translation : Asa Measure. Tipdas 8. Du-Tukas 7 and Ik tuka 1 of Venerable Kabir.There is but one God. By True Guru's grace He is obtained.He, the Lord has created thy body from semen and kept thee in the fire pit.For ten months He kept thee in mother's belly, and again on birth mammon got attached to thee.O man, attaching thyself to covetousness, why losest thou the gem like life of thine?Thou sowed not the seed of good actions in the earth of Thy former births. Pause.From an infant thou hast grown old. What was to happen, that has happened.When Death's Minister comes and catches thee by the top-lock, why weepest thou then?Thou hopest for longer life and death watches thine breaths.The world is but a game, O Kabir so alertly throw the dice.
