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!

Eating Practice

When you are a baby, you have to learn everything.  It's the same for baby lambs.  We didn't know how to eat grass, or kibbles, or cookies, or anything!

Snowball is demonstrating our eating practice in the back yard.

He does not take this long to eat one blade of grass anymore!

He doesn't ask for permission, either! Neither do I!

You can see me in the way back.  I'm behind the bush.  That's me, Doodle, that the hand is pointing to.  I was doing my eating practice on the neighbor's bush.  It was sticking through the fence, so I thought it was ours.

Did you know that lambs, and big sheep, do not have top front teeth?  It's true.  We don't!  We can still bite though.  If we wanted to.  Snowball bit Dad's finger once.  But that's because Dad was trying to get something out of Snowball's mouth.  He was choking.  Snowball, not Dad.  So Dad put Snowball on his butt, and that's when Snowball bit him!

Snowball is a spoiled baby monster.  We still love him, though.
