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!

Sharing...or Not

 We don't all grow at the same rate.  Sometimes that means the littlest one doesn't get his fair share.  That's what has been happening with Snowball.
We can't help it.  Winter is coming, and we have to eat up so we will be strong and warm and able to handle the cold.  I haven't had a winter yet, so I'm not sure what everyone is talking about.  But I like to eat, so I'm "bulking up" for the winter.  
Snowball eats by himself now.  He's kind of a slow eater.  You can't be slow around me and Uncle Rosebud!  Shermy, too.  So, the three biggest guys share the trough, and little Baby Snowball gets his own bowl.  Everybody seems more peaceful this way, and we're ALL enjoying our dinner now!
Today, though, Uncle Rosebud and Uncle Shermy thought they would try to eat from Snowball's bowl first!  It was great for me.  I went right in and started eating out of our trough.  I think their plan backfired, because I was eating and Snowball was eating, but the Uncles were being chased around so they would come to the trough like they are supposed to.  Sometimes being older doesn't mean being wiser!
