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!

Milk Bottles ~ Our Favorites!

We started out with lots and lots of milk bottles a day.  Mom and Dad tried to make it as much like having a real sheep mommy as possible.

Sometimes I would get so excited, I could hardly find the teat.  And once, when Mom was feeding me, I pulled it so hard, the teat came away from the bottle and everything fell on the ground, and all the milk spilled out.  It was horrible!  Mom went and got me more, though.

I guess we got kinda frothy around our mouths.  Mom and Dad always wiped our mouths with a napkin before we could go play again.

Snowball used to poke his pointy mouth really hard at Mom and Dad, demanding his bottle.  Sometimes, I still see him try to do this with Mom.  He is convinced he should still have a bottle.
