Rogue squashes

Several factors lead to rogue squashes on the lawn
1) No herbicide use
2) The person mowing the lawn doesn't give a shit about perfection and will often let curious-looking 'weeds' live to see what happens when they grow up
3) Dogs who raid the compost bin and poop out seeds all over the yard

The butternut and zucchini that I planted on purpose and mulched and fertilized and watered with care... are mostly dead from blight, but this random (acorn?) squash that is ignored is going wild.
