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!

Meeting the Uncles and Seeing the Wide World

When we were a little over a month old, Mom and Dad put us in the back of the car and took us out to meet Uncle Rosebud and Uncle Shermy.  It was very exciting.  And pretty scary, too...at first.

I'm a very alert Doodle.  I was noticing everything around me.  The grass was a lot taller there, too.  I felt very small.  So did Snowball.  We sorta stuck together in the beginning.

Then this big, HUMONGOUS, woolly sheep came up to us.  Shermy.  You can see Snowball high-tailing it outta there.

Shermy was persistent, though.  Snowball kept saying, "Get 'im off me!  Get 'im off me!"

And then ANOTHER ginormous sheep with tons of wool came over:  Rosebud.

Mom!  Dad!  We're ready to go home now!  Come and get us!!


We all pretty much get along now.  The uncles can be grumpy sometimes, and they don't like to play much.  Sometimes they want to butt us out of the way, but we can run faster than they can.  I think we'll always be able to run faster...ha ha ha!
