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!

Learning About Bigness

When we were little tiny, we spent some afternoons in the BIG field with the BIG sheep.

We tried to copy what the BIG sheep were doing.

We didn't have to bend down as far to reach the grass!

Then, I smelled all the wonderful smells of the BIG field!  Big smells!  All kinds of new animals and grasses and plants and flowers.  WOW!

All the BIG smells made me have a Flehmen response:  look at my mouth open.  It's like a big smile!

I was such a happy little lamb, out in the BIGNESS, experiencing the world.  It wasn't too scary...because Mom and Dad were right there with us.

It was only ever scary when one of the BIG sheep with the BIG heads came over to investigate us.  I didn't like that too much.

Nowadays, though...I don't care.  I'm a bigger Doodle, and I can just push my way through!  Growing up is good.
