She had a large house and believed that she could keep the two dogs apart. However, as she was drifting off to sleep she heard moaning sounds, rushed downstairs and found the dogs locked together, in obvious pain and unable to disengage, as so frequently happens when dogs mate.
Unable to separate them, and perplexed as to what to do next, although it was late, she called the vet, who answered in a very grumpy voice.
She explained the problem to him, and the vet said,
"Hang up the phone and place it down alongside the dogs. I will then call you back and the noise of the ringing should make the male lose
his erection and he will withdraw."
"Do you think that will work?" she asked.
"It just worked for me," he replied.
"Don't think of them as problems, think of them as opportunities."
"OK, I think I've hit an insurmountable opportunity!"
