When you adopt a dog, you expect to drop some cash on things like food, visits to the vet, and maybe chew toys. But one man's best friend drained his bank account in an unexpected way.
According to Kotaku, a man named Greg says his one-year-old dog, Oscar, purchased 5,000 points on his Xbox Live account, totaling $62.50, while the owner slept in the next room. Somehow, the lab/hound mix (pictured above) managed to spend the money simply by chewing on the plastic controller. Greg says he woke up the next morning to read an e-mail confirming his purchase. After initially being angry, he just laughed it off. Instead of pleading with Microsoft for a refund, he just decided to purchase some new video games and a replacement controller with the points.
While it may be hard to believe, dogs have done much more amazing things than this. If only Greg's pup could've been more heroic like Lassie and less dim-witted like Odie. Let's just hope Oscar doesn't develop an expensive Halo habit. [From: Kotaku]
