Meet Miyamoto's Nintendog

And receive a special gift.

Calling all Nintendogs fans - get yourself, your DS and your virtual best friend down to Lakeside Thurrock shopping centre this week for a very special treat.

The Lakeside branch of Woolworths will be holding a Nintendogs promotion every day from 12-8pm where you can interact with Pip, a virtual puppy belonging to none other than Shigeru Miyamoto.

And that's not all - you can use the game's record player function to download a special voice message from Miyamoto (presumably something along the lines of "Hello I'm Shigeru Miyamoto" rather than the "Your dog looks well gay" type messages we've seen Nintendog-owning youths exchanging). You'll also get a unique gift for your puppy.

Friday will be the last day Pip makes an appearance at Woolworths, but if you don't make it in time you might like to attend the Discover Dogs show at Earl's Court on November 13-14, where he'll also be meeting and greeting Nintendogs fans.
