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!
I, Doodle, and my family: Uncle Rosebud, Uncle Shermy, and Snowball (the McLambies) want to wish you all a very Merry Christmas!
The weather is a bit rough here ~ all rainy and sleety and cold. We're busy eating to keep warm and in good condition. Mom and Dad got us a feed and mineral pail for Christmas! YUMMY! Like a great big lollipop!
We hope Santa brings you something good, too!
Don't forget to thank God for bringing us all Baby Jesus!
We spent a lot of time romping through the garage when we were little.
I guess that's why Mom called it Romper Room. I don't know!
We had to play inside sometimes because we were so little, and our people didn't want us to go out in the rain and get cold or wet. So, we explored a lot. We had to discover what we could eat...and what we weren't supposed to eat.
We always got yelled at when we tried to chew on the charcoal grill. I don't get that. I thought a grill had something to do with food?
Sometimes I would get so frustrated, I would just chomp on Snowball's ear. He used to gnaw on my ears, too.
Whaddya mean, "No wonder"?
Mom would sit in the lawn chair and watch over us. We both liked to climb all over her, and to chew on her wellie boots.
And then there were times when I had just had enough of all the commotion, and I would plop down where I was and take a nap. Sawdust made a good bed!
