It's obvious why this is called 'Dog Rock'. Taken in Albany, Western Australia. From 'About-Australia.com:
"This huge granite outcrop near the town centre of Albany has an unmistakable likeness to the head of a bloodhound sniffing the air.
Dog Rock is a must-do stop on any trip to Albany and is a popular place for that great holiday photograph. There’s even a dog collar painted around this iconic Albany tourism attraction.
Dog Rock is located on Middleton Beach Road, and is a two minute walk from the town centre.
Albany is a four and a half hour drive from Perth or you can fly there in an hour and a half."

I like this idea. I think it is quite human to search for similar paths around them. It does not matter, it is a stone or a spot on the wallpaper. Fine presentation of the local attraction.

great and unforgettable the rock with the shape of a dog.It must be the attraction of the area with the presentation through out the site to make it even more well known.
The light and the colour management as the clarity of the image are unique.

The trees are frmaing well the rock. The point of view is showing the details and colors of the Dog rock. The late afternoon light is enhancing the colors. Have a nice day.

it really look like a dog head. Here in Brazil we have a big mountain with a dog seated shape. Take a look here:Cão Sentado .
Adding this to my theme.

J'aime la présentation de ce rocher qui ressemble a un chien avec son collier, sûrement un rocher qui ne passe pas inaperçu, belle idée de présentation, lumière et couleurs

yeah, the name of the rock is obvious, nature sometimes give us this kind of surprises, well seen and presented, I like it,

That amazing rock looks as a man-made statue, Chris, but as many strange earth-formations in our little world, I would not be surprised is nature did its own job here. Fine dog's resemblance, and perfectly shown profile side.
Have a nice holiday weekend.
