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 Lamby Derby

Hey Dad!  Can we go out and play on the McLamby Racetrack?
See...there is this field next to ours.  It had potatoes in it.  Then they were gone.  Then it got flattened and had these ridges which made a perfect racetrack!  Snowball and I liked to play we were race lambs.

You can't really tell it from this picture, but we were running neck and neck!  It was so much fun.  I would run and run, until my tongue would hang out and I was panting.  Snowball's other name is Rocket.  He can go really fast.

Here he is racing to Dad.  For cookies.  It looks like he's just walking, but he isn't.  He is running very, very fast.  And most times, he puts his head down in a point and his nose back.  He's very streamlined.  I, on the other hand, am not a very aerodynamic Doodle.  I'm just a Dynamic Doodle!

But now... the field has had more machines and tractors and things, and Dad says they are planting.  No more racetrack for the McLambies.  For now, anyway.  I guess we'll just eat grass and cookies and run up and down the road.  It's still fun!
