no, i dont think this is dock.
it is definitely not yellow dock, aka "curly dock"....

there are quite a few other kinds of dock, so i am not 100 percent sure, but i dont think this is any of them either. unfortunately i dont know what it is though.

Heh. Remember the Great Burdock I mentioned in your other post? This looks like a pretty good match to me. Here's a reference image.

Yeah, I think it looks like Burdock too. Let it go to flower and seed and you'll have a better idea - if it is burdock, the root is a yummy wild edible and used medicinally.
