Four people in my house looked at the pic, and saw an animal
I bet you the majority of people asked that had ever seen a squirrel or guinea pig would see an animal at first glance... that's the point.
It looks like an animal to me too.
But, I think it's a rock based on an abundance of other evidence.

They have every reason to lie to us and to other Governments. The space race is still ongoing. Both the US and Russia lied throughout those early days just as a form of one-upmanship. Just because the Iron Curtain is no more doesn't make it any less of a race for superiority. Remember the hacker Gary McKinnon who hacked the Defence files? He discovered information that related to "non-terrestrial" forces and names of ships which were not naval. Everyone wants an advantage it's the nature of the beast

People that make claims such as "There is a rodent on Mars" (or even "there is a rodent on the Earth where the rover actually is located), don't bother to actually check details of photos they are making claims about. The rodent for example - the most damning (non)evidence is the fact that the "leg" and "paw" are actually solidly connected to the "body." There is no separation.. unless it's a slug-rodent of some type, it's not a rodent. There is lighter color on the underside of the rock behind and in front of your "rodent." There is an angular horizontal line along the side of the "rodent" that doesn't look at all rodent-like. It is whiskerless. Its mouth and ears are deformed. The tail if you bother to zoom in, is clearly just a bit of rock above a shadow.
Out of the however many 10s of thousands of pictures.. no plant life.. no other life.. nothing.. other than a single rodent? No lichen, nada..
If you are going to claim pictures are rodents.. do some serious study. Not a cursory glance and claim you've discovered a space gerbil or something. Even a basic zooming in on the pictures makes it clear the thing is a rock. Zoom in on the other rodent posted. It becomes even more clear it's an animal, and even when more fuzzy, claws, whispers, the eye, and so on, are easily identifiable. Zooming in on the Mars rodent has the opposite effect. Clear sign we are not looking at a space gerbil, nor looking at Canada.

This very idea is laughable. First off, you're aware that there are distinct terrain features seen in the High Arctic that are totally inconsistent with the images coming back from Mars, right? For one thing, if you looked at the pictures you posted at all, you'd see that the rock on Devon Island has significant amounts of lichen and moss on it, and even some scattered grass around, none of which exists on Mars.
Second, the soil in your second Mars image (the alleged bones) is quite obviously sandy, which is not present at all in Arctic desert environments, the ground on Devon Island would be hard-packed gravel and rough rock shards.
That image also highlights another feature missing from the Mars images, raised patterns caused by permafrost, to say nothing of visible surface ice and snow.

I suppose this could be a plausible theory. But I just don't see why after building and successfully testing robots and rockets, they wouldn't just go all the way to Mars.

Well, let's shed some light on my "mindset".
To start off with, I used to think the whole UFO-phenomenon was a bunch of nonsense together with a lot of other conspiracy theories. Up to 5 years ago, I would sometimes make fun of people of people online because they were so dumb and misled to take UFOs seriously.
And then I started to pay attention and leave my emotional investment in the paradigm I was living in, at the door.
