A dog lover, whose dog was a female and on heat, agreed to look after her neighbours' male dog while they were on holiday.
However, as she was drifting off to sleep she heard awful howling and moaning sounds. Rushing downstairs she found the dogs locked together, in obvious pain and unable to disengage, as can happen when dogs mate.
Unable to separate them, and not knowing what to do next, although it was late, she called the vet, who answered in a very grumpy voice.
Having explained the problem to him, the vet said, â€œHang up the phone and place it down alongside the dogs. I will then call you back and the noise of the ringing will make the male lose his erection and he will be able to withdraw."
