Narrative

rising to c. 700m, E of N end of Walton Mountains, Alexander Island, following survey by BAS from "Fossil Bluff", 1974-75, was so named from its resemblance to the shape of a dog in plan and because it marks the burial place of dogs put down during reduction of BAS dog teams at that time (APC, 1980, p.3; BAS 250P sheet SR 19-20/13, 2-DOS 1984).
