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!

Doodle Learns About Eating Grass

When we were little, we didn't start eating grass right away.  First, we had milk bottles.  Then, we started trying to eat rocks.  Mom and Dad made us stop... after awhile.

And, we had teething to go through.  That's when we gnawed on everything... especially plastic.  Yummy!

And before we really figured out about grass, we ate a lot of leaves.

But one day... Dad dumped some of the little pieces of grass from when he mowed the lawn.  Perfect little baby bite sized pieces of grass, already cut up for babies!  Boy, did it ever smell good!  And we ate it.  I was the first to discover the joys of eating green grass.

And now... you can't stop me!  I'm a regular grass eating machine.  CHOMP CHOMP CHOMP.  Get out of my way... Doodle is coming through!  CHOMP CHOMP CHOMP
I don't think Dad would give us cut up pieces of grass anymore.  He's too busy chasing us away from bushes and flowers.  Besides... now he has pockets full of cookies, and Mom does, too.  So, we get to eat lots and lots of grass, and cookies!  And hay.  And kibbles!  CHOMP CHOMP CHOMP
