Egad--it's an Ice Dog!

I was intrigued when I noticed a hollow column of ice which had formed where the small waterfall splashes into the pond in my garden. As you can see, the water runs down through the middle! Of course, I had to click a photo.
Unexpectedly, when I checked out the picture on my computer--I was sure I could see an ice dog. He's sitting up, facing to the left. He sports jowls, eye, floppy ear and his nose rests against the grey stone. He's either wrapped up in a plump ice blanket, or he's VERY fat.

For the viewing him best, click for the larger picture. Can you see him???

I must confess that I can't see the ice dog.

Oh yeah, he's wrapped up in a warmm wooley blanket, nose to the stone trying to figure out why he has water dripping inside him. LOL!

Teach him fetch thrown icicles, and you've really got something there.

I admit, I looked, and could not find him either. I think I saw Spider-man, however.

And if you find the Virgin Mary in it, better get it on eBay before it melts.

As soon as I enlarged the picture, I saw him!

This time I'm at a loss to find the same thing you see. Usually I spot it immediately!
