Can you identify this fungus on the stump?

Hello, I thought I'd see if anyone could identify the pictured fungus on my 18" tree stump. I've been removing it a chunk at a time and have been using some stump remover to help accelerate the breakdown, but my dog roots around by the stump and I hate to have him ingest some of it if it may make him sick. Thanks.

Don't know what kind it is but be very careful. Some fungi will not only make a dog sick, it can kill them. I personally would keep my dog away from it. Or try to cut/scrape it off if you can.
