Definitely worth a drive to and a photo stop for a natural dogs head lookalike. It is pretty difficult to go anywhere in Albany without passing by this rock.

As my title says it is hard to review as it is just a rock on the side of Middleton Road but it does indeed look like the upturned face of a dog a definite quirk of nature.
