Are there any tree's or something within range that you could anchor to? A winch truck, perhaps a big tow truck, could get it out if there was something to anchor the truck to. A know a guy who got a 200 size excavator stuck in gumbo and it was pulled out with a winch truck and several snatch blocks. They figured there was over 50 tons of pull but the truck was anchored to a few large tree's. They hooked big chains to the track pads and were surprised the pads didn't break. They just slid it along on the tracks. I don't know if that would work in your case as a dozer has single grousers instead of street pads. A good size excavator (or 2) might get it out too. Hooking a big cable on the bucket teeth has a lot of pull force.

Forgot to mention that if there is water in the pond, there may not be as much suction as if it were were just gumbo mud. I used to race a dirt bike and also worked with equipment in wet conditions. Going through a water filled hole is not nearly as sticky and slimy as going through a similar hole after the water has been pumped out and/or dried up a bit. It seems like the water in the hole keeps the bottom firm but once the water is gone and air gets at the hole, it turns to a sticky slimy mess.
