Dr. V. is a local obstetrician. He and his wife have always lived fairly simply because that was their way. But when Dr. V. had his Midlife Crisis, he made two expensive purchases that he had always wanted. He bought a completely restored vintage Porsche convertible and a champion sired Great Dane.
His wife started calling the dog Crisis, which is something Great Dane owners might understand, and the name stuck.
Every evening he loads Crisis into the passenger seat of the convertible and they drive off to a deserted road. Then he lets Crisis out on a long lead to run beside the Porsche.
We often wonder if he bought the Porsche to exercise the Great Dane or bought the Great Dane as an excuse to buy the Porsche.
