Dexter's Lawn Care and Fall Colors

I have taken on responsibility for eradication of pesky weeds throughout our neighborhood.

Weed be gone!

Fall in New England. The brilliant bursts of color make the inevitable onset of winter less foreboding. 

Naturally, the trees are even more remarkable when contrasted with a sleek black labradog.

Hurry up with the photo. There's a whole year's worth of squirrel to snuffle in those leaves.

Dexter done!


  1. HI Dexter
    Looks like your doing a great job on weed control and the photo of you under the tree is pawesome :) Milo & Jet

  2. Your leaves look so purrty. Being from the South we has to admire them in pictures. We don't have the burst of color you do in New England. On the other hand most of our trees are evergreens.

  3. You look so handsome against the fabulous autumn leaves, Dexter!

    Love ya lots♥
    Mitch and Molly

  4. Your fall looks much more colorful than our fall. We're blaming it on the complete lack of rain this spring/summer. Nice work on the weed control! Maybe we should hire you to take care of some of the pesky growth on our hillside - apparently neither Abby nor I have the requisite equipment for weed control!

  5. Nothing like New England in the fall. Looks like Dexter has his aim down pat!

  6. You will wipe out the weeds with no problemo. Beautiful Tree, we love the fall colors!!

  7. Beautiful. Our leaves are having a hard time with the odd temperature fluctuations and now, we have the last gasps of Tropical Storm Karen messing with them.

  8. Good job keeping the weeds down Dexter. Our leaves have not really changed yet.

    Your friends,
    Niamh & Ambrose

  9. Oh yes that is a perfect picture of you and the tree. And the neckerchief so subtly enhances the overall artiistic effect,
    Toodle pip!

  10. you certianly do enhance that tree and make it look even more beautiful

  11. Forget that colorful tree - we love the labradorable pup!!! You are just too handsome in your colorful wares!

  12. Even though I can't see the leaves changing colours, the smell of fall in the North is second to none. I've missed it.

  13. You look awesome, buddy! I can't wait for our leaves to start changing around here!
    Play bows,

  14. I've been trying to help mom and dad with the weeds the same way, but they don't seem to appreciate it.

  15. We could use some weed killer--do you bottle it?

    Gorgeous tree....and model.

    XXXoOO Daisy, bella & Roxy

  16. You may water them into bigger weeds. Beautiful fall colors

  17. Yay for fall.....and weed killer of course!

  18. Dexter! I'm getting close to a solution. Won't be long now. In the meantime, enjoy the stunning beauty of your fall trees. They could be ordered at any time to cease and desist their colorful transformation due to the govt shutdown.

  19. I'm enjoying the Fall weather, too, but I don't want to think about Winter for a long time. I'm glad you've got those weeds under control!


  20. Nice trick using that tree to make your furs look more glossy black!!


  21. BOL! Weed Killer! We really miss our big brother...he looked like you! Very handsome against the red tree!

  22. OMD! Your just too funny Dex! I do the same thingie throughout the neighborhood!! Well, somebody's gotta do it right...those weeds would be outta control if it wasn't for us!
    Ah, yes, you do look FABulous there in front of those FABulously smellin' leaves!!!

  23. I hope Momma gave you plenty of squirrel investigation time in return for your excellent modeling skills, and making that tree look so extra-good.

  24. Howdy Dex, cool autumn photo mate. Did you colour co-ordinate your bandana to match the trees?? You are one cool dude. Thanks for weeding tip. We'll give it a go. Should keep us busy for the next 87 months or so. No worries, and love, Stella and Rory

  25. You are so helpful killing the weeds? You must be an honorary working dog, not sporting dog! And your trees are so pretty! The squirrels must be going NUTS!

  26. Dexter, you're back! Great to see you! How are you all? Meow from Malaysia.
    PS awesome weed killing job!

  27. You're probably doing a better job than me on weed control Dex. Being a bit smaller n you I am findin - so many weeds, not enuff pee. Doin what we can for the world in any way we can. Keep up the good werk. WOOFS.

  28. Oh WOW!!!!! You look stunning sitting next to that tree! If I lived in an area where there were real fall colors like that, I would quit my job and just sit outside staring at all the leaves until winter came.

  29. Hey Dex!
    Wow, perfect shooting there...right on target! Gee, your leaves are gorgeous and I bet you watered that tree too. BOL I like going for walkies and crunching my feet through the fallen leaves. Ahhhh.
    Grr and Woof,
    Sarge, COP

  30. Hey Dex, awesome job of keeping those weeds under control! We like the pic of you and the beautiful fall orange color. Nice!

  31. way to work on those weeds!

    Stop on by for a visit

  32. We love the Fall! You know what comes after Fall right? The white fluffy stuff!
    I wanted to report to you that my day at the spa was nice. Mom was worried that I wouldn't do well because I am shy with humans but I did well. My late sister Angel Samantha on the other didn't like it when mom sent her many years ago. The groomer called mom and said that Samantha kept showing her fangs and she looked like she was going to bite. So mom had to pick her up. That's probably why mom was worried when she sent me.
    TGIF!!! Have a great weekend!


  33. Nice of that tree to show off your sleek labrafurs...


  34. Hi Dexter..long time no woof...I'm FINALLY getting to catch up! :-)

    We LOVE the picture of your beautiful tree with the autumn leaves. Autumn is our favourite season...and in a way, it's ncie that we're upside down to the rest of the world 'coz even when we're going into spring, we can now enjoy autumn through all our dog blog friends in the Northern Hemisphere.

    Oh! And We loved the post about your early start in blogging! We'd seen several puppy photos of Mango but hadn't actually seen any of you as a baby puppy....oooh, you were ADORABLE!!! :-)
