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!

The Big Shiny Glass Thing

When we were little, and lived in the back yard, there was this huge shiny thing of glass.  We loved to play around it.  We would jump up and down on the steps and tap dance!  Sometimes we used the steps as spring boards for taking off like rockets.  And sometimes, we would just lie down and rest on the top step.  The big shiny glass thing was kind of like our own back yard.  We would see green grass, and two other baby lambs!  And sometimes, Mom and Dad would move the glass thing and come out of it!  Snowball said that is where the milk was kept.  I'm not sure.

Sometimes we would stand on the top step and tell stories about what was on the other side of the big shiny glass thing.  And we would even tell secrets!  That's me, Doodle, telling Snowball a secret in his ear.  I don't remember what.

Snowball did not give up easily when he decided the milk was in there.  He liked to stare inside, and sometimes he would see another lamb, just faintly.  If you look closely at this picture, you can see another lamb that looks kinda like Snowball!  The other lamb was inside.  Once, Snowball went inside...but just barely.  Dad grabbed him and made him come out again.
