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!

Fearless (Foolish?) Baby Snowball

Baby Snowball was very friendly.  He still is.  And, he's very curious.  And, well, pretty much fearless.
When we would go visiting the Uncles, before we moved in with them, Snowball would try to make friends and play.  Uncle Shermy did not like this so much.
Here's Snowball trying to tell Uncle Shermy a secret.

And here's Uncle Shermy telling Snowball, "Go away kid!  Ya bug me."

Snowball didn't always take the hint.  Most of the time, Uncle Rosebud was pretty mild mannered, and he would just sorta watch stuff.

Uncle Shermy is telling Baby Snowball to "take a hike."  We weren't sure what that meant.  (I think Uncle Shermy was embarrassed about his raggedy coat, myself.)

Baby Snowball tried and tried, but the Uncles did NOT want to play.

Finally, he gave up.  Poor Baby Snowball.

Snowball came back, saying, "Mom!  Mommy!  They won't play with me!  What can we do next?"
