About Dog Stone

The Dog Stone is a big gneiss rock that so closely resembled a dog, it inspired Thomas Grace to name Hondeklipbaai, which means “Dog Stone Bay”.

In 1853 the “Dog” was defaced when its ear was chopped of and taken to Cape Town in order to start the fictitious “Dog’s Ear Copper Company”. During a severe lightning storm in the 70s, it lost its nose as well.

This place was added by K9 Cottage.
