You're a psychic! Well a good pareidolian at least. What a great find, very clever.

That's funny, I looked very quickly at this and went back to a previous photo to give it another look. As I flipped away I said to myself, "I see a dog." Now I come back and see your title, shazam, dog. I think I see a St. Bernard.
