    A Michigan woman nearly killed her dog when she accidentally struck it in the temple with a Wii Remote. Kathy White was playing Wii Sports' bowling with her daughter when she made the motion to roll her virtual ball and, as she puts it, hit the dog and "killed him instantly." The dog, Ozzy, was not moving or breathing. She called her neighbor -- who we're guessing must have some veterinary training -- and she revived the dog using mouth-to-mouth resuscitation.

    The problem is obvious. They didn't put that rubber glove on the remote like Nintendo makes you nowadays...

    This is what happens when you don't use the wiicondom.

    I think her and her Wiimote need to take a trip down to Hotel for Dogs.

    ouch poor dog.
    how the heck do you do mouth to mouth on a dog?
    unlike us, they cant open their mouth a lil bit
    cuz if they do, the rest of the mouth opens (like pacman)

    I got a question, for those of us who bought the Wii at release and did not receive the Wiimote "condoms" in the box, is there a way to get them for free from Nintendo (like how they gave out wrist strap replacements for free)?

    yup, those silly wiidoms make the remotes just look crap.

    here is an idea, make sure your dog isn't in front of you whilst playing bowling!

    Mouth to mouth is misleading when it comes to dogs - the person actually puts his/her mouth over the dog's nose, while holding the mouth shut.
