It can be the way of the world

A Scottish lad was washed up on a beach after a terrible shipwreck. 
 
 Only a sheep and a sheepdog were washed up with him.
Looking around, he realized they were stranded on a deserted island. After
being there awhile, he got into the habit of taking his two animal
companions to the beach every evening to watch the sun set. 
 
One particular evening, the sky was a fiery red with beautiful cirrus
clouds, the breeze was warm and gentle – a perfect night for romance. 
 
As they sat there, the sheep started looking better and better to the
lonely Scot.
Soon, he leaned over to the sheep and… put his arm around it.
 
But the sheepdog, ever protective of the sheep, growled fiercely until the
man took his arm from around the sheep.
 
After that, the three of them continued to enjoy the sunsets together but
there was no more cuddling.
 
A few weeks passed by and, lo and behold, there was another shipwreck.
The only survivor was a beautiful young lass, the most beautiful lass our
lad had ever seen. She was in a pretty bad way when he rescued her and he
slowly nursed her back to health.
 
When the young maiden was well enough, he introduced her to their evening
beach ritual. It was another beautiful evening…. red sky, cirrus clouds, a
warm and gentle breeze – perfect for a night of romance.
 
Pretty soon, the lad started to get ‘those feelings’ again.
He fought the urges as long as he could but he finally gave in and realizing
he now had the opportunity, leaned over to the young woman cautiously and
whispered in her ear, 
 
 ‘Would you mind taking the dog for a walk?’
