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!

Baby Days: The Back Yard, Pt 1

 Look how little Baby Snowball is!  He was just tiny, with a very pointy nose!
 When we were about a week old, and the weather was drier, we started spending time in the back yard.  There were lots of things to explore...and GRASS!!  We weren't sure what to do with green grass at first, but now we are grazing champions.  You can see in this picture that I had been a sick lamby, and had pretty bad scours (diarrhea).  Dad got medicine for me, and Mom fed me lots of electrolytes (she said it was "juice").  It took a few weeks...and Snowball got it, too.  Then we had to have more medicine and extra care...but we both got well.
See Snowball's pointy nose!
