The geological formation received its name, not only for its appearance, but also because it marks approximately the 1000 mile mark from Ohama, Nebraska. It was also called dog rock because of the dog-like appearance of the top of the rock." Information source is from Frank Leslie's Illustrated Newspaper, March 5, 1870, p.120.
