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!

Playtime for Baby Lambs

This is us, Snowball and me, Doodle, running around the yard with Dad.  You can see we were little.  Maybe about a month old.

We ran a LOT.  Running and jumping is fun!  Mom says most of the pictures she took of us running and jumping just turned out like blurs.  Zoom!  We were fast.  We still are fast!

We liked to climb on stuff and jump off of it.  And we had our own little house inside the garage.  We would come and go, and run in and out of the garage door into the backyard.

I learned to drink water from a tub before Snowball did!
Doesn't he look like a wiesenheimer in this picture?  That's because he is.  And he's just looking for trouble!

Everything was fun and exciting for us:  water in a tub, steps to jump on, tires to play on, gravel to carry around in our mouths and then spit out.  Life is a daily adventure when you are a lamb.  It is especially good when someone is taking care of you!

There goes Snowball.  He's off.  And just a blur.  He'll ricochet off the steps and fly around the corner and come bouncing back on all four feet!  Yep, running and jumping are fun!  
We're not baby lambs anymore...except Snowball.  He says he is.  And Mom says he is, too.  But we still like to run and jump and march like soldiers!
