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!

Learning to Think About Others

Hey!  It turns out we weren't the only lambies getting used to something new when we moved out to the big field.  The Uncles were getting used to US, too!  We never thought of that.  They kinda liked to stick together... because they already knew each other and were friends.  But they weren't sure of us, for a long time.  Sometimes they still aren't!

Here's Uncle Rosebud...er, Uncle Bud... being all sleepy and like a big teddy bear.  Even I, the cute Doodle, can see he has cuteness, too.

The Uncles are grazing peacefully.  We were learning about that, too.  And you can see our neighbors!  We made friends with some of them.  Uncle Bud had a favorite corner of the field he liked to lie down in, and chat with the neighbors.
It's a thought... realizing there are other folks like you in the world!
