Who is Doodle, you ask? Doodle is one of the four lambs (sheep) who make up the McLamby family. He lives in the Northern Highlands of Scotland, and this is his blog. That's right; life from a lamb's point of view. Doodle, and his brother Snowball, were orphaned lambs and raised on bottles...first in the garage and backyard of their people ("Dad" and "Mom")...then out in the big field with their "Uncles" Rosebud and Shermy, two big Cheviot sheep who are also...er...pet sheep. Sometimes it's just fine for someone to have no other purpose in life but to live and be one of God's creatures. That's Doodle, Snowball, Rosebud, and Shermy. Welcome to their world!

Doodle and Co ~ the "Co", Part 2

This handsome chap is Shermy.  He's half North Country Cheviot and half Shetland.  He is 3 years old, and he came to live with Uncle Rosebud...er, Bud...in 2010.  He tends to have bug-eyes when he gets alarmed.  When we first came to live with the Uncles, Shermy was kind of stand-offish.  He didn't like us much.  I think he was jealous.  But then...one day, he had a breakthrough, and he discovered how much fun it is to get petted and squished and hugged and cooed over.  Now he gets lots of squishing and hugging, too.  I don't mind.  If I want a turn, I just push Uncle Shermy out of the way with my big Doodle head!
