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!

Snowball Takes a Drink

Baby lambs have to learn everything from scratch, just like baby people.  Most of us come standard with the ability to suck, but even then, not always.  Snowball was a champion bottle baby, though.  He was very focused and concentrated when it was milk bottle time.  I, er, sometimes got too excited and distracted...and I couldn't always find the right end of the bottle.  Or I would drop it.  Accidentally.  Anyway, I learned to drink water first, and we were all worried that Snowball would never figure out how to get water if he was thirsty.  But he did!  FINALLY!  Here's Snowball drinking out of a basin all by himself.  Yay for Snowball!
