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!

We Went For a Ride

 Today was such an adventure!  First, we all came into a tiny fenced area and got kibbles and cookies ~ early!  Uncle Bud was not sure he wanted to do this, but he couldn't resist when he saw the rest of us getting snacks.
 But then, before we knew what was happening, Uncle Bud and Uncle Shermy walked up this ramp, and our people made us follow, and we got closed in this box with skinny windows.  Dad said we were going on a bus ride, but I don't think we did.  There weren't even any seats.  Snowball (who should be called SnowBAWL) baa-ed the whole entire time, which was at least 50 days (but Dad says it was only about 15 minutes).  Snowbawl's baaing scared me, and so I baaed, too.
 The next thing we knew, our bus was backed up to this great open door, and we were welcomed into a whole new field...no other occupants, and nobody else's, er, poo.
 Here we are, getting out of our limo...er, bus...er, big metal box thing.  They drove us right up to the door!
Shermy found the dead nettles (one of our favorite snacks) right away, so we all followed his lead and discovered there was a lot to eat.  Not only that, but we got more cookies and kibbles.  The bus went away, and we did not have to get in it again.  I think we are living here now.  I will tell you more about it tomorrow.  I need a nap.
