Wii Remote Sends Family Dog To The Other Side

The mysteries of the afterlife are now clear to Michigan-based miniature Sheltie Ozzy, a five-month old puppy that has come face to face with death, thanks to a near fatal Wii Remote toss.

Fortunately, Ozzy's brush with eternal rest was only temporary, knowing Death's belly rub for no more than a few minutes. After the family dog was struck in the fuzzy temple during a game of, we assume, Wii Sports bowling, it was hastily revived with mouth-to-mouth resuscitation.

The dog suffered from brain swelling and was sent into cardiac arrest, following the incident, travelling only a short distance across the river Styx before being pulled back into the light.

It's a sobering story that has a very clear message — wrist straps, people. We cannot stress this enough. Wrist straps or prepare to be on the receiving end of a PETA protest and/or a dog haunting.

    Resuscitated with mouth-to-mouth? Kudos to the owners, I feel better knowing one little dog is truly loved and that Wii incidents continue to stretch the boundaries of 'freak accident'.
