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 Scruffingtons

And the first Scruffington is:  Uncle Rosebud.  With his "I'm suspicious AND I'm a curmudgeon" look.

In the summer, the big sheep get very woolly.  They have to have their coats taken off.  I'm not sure what that means yet.  We didn't get to watch last summer.  They looked a lot nicer when they had their woolliness taken away.  I wonder what it will be like this summer?

Scruffington Number Two:  Uncle Shermy.  With his, "I KNOW you have a cookie on you" look.

Shermy has a very handsome wool coat this year.  I wonder what will become of it?
I'm growing a lot of wool, too, now that I think about it.  And so is Snowball.  Is this something I should be worried about?
