Mysterious Concrete Slab

I'm the new owner of a 1950-built home in Whitefish Bay, WI. While doing some landscape regrading around an addition put on sometime after the initial construction (which we think included an expansion of the basement), we discovered this mysterious concrete slab
buried underneath some bushes, next to one of the basement windows. Why is it there? And is it doing something important?

There was a rusted dog chain buried with the slab, which made us concerned that it can only be the final resting place of some monstrous were-dog. It seems possible that there was once a patio in this part of the backyard, but there's no evidence of it now; the whole thing is grass and bushes. Any theories?
