Dog Walking Arcade Game

Lisa Katayama o' Tokyomango found (and played) this gem:

This is arguably the most challenging arcade game I have ever played. Much more so than Beatmania or DDR (j/k, I so don't play DDR) or Street Fighter II. Basically you have to walk on a treadmill while holding this white dog's leash. Walk too fast, and he'll get tired. Walk too slow, and he'll get bored. And when obstacles like the neighborhood bully dog or a oncoming car shows up on the screen, you better steer clear! If you mess up, your dog dies.

Wow, if The Girl played a game where a dog died every time she failed - it might turn into a kind of therapy moment. Animal injuries and needles top the list of things she needs proper protection from seeing.
