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!

A Growing Snowball

Here we see Baby Snowball, 'sploring.  He is growing up!
When you are a baby lamb, everything in the world is new and needs to be 'splored.  And you discover all kinds of green things for eating that you never knew about!

Here is Snowball in the summer sunshine of a late afternoon.  He is investigating all the eating possibilities.  He is a pickier eater than I am.

His favorite things to eat are leaves off trees and bushes, but since there weren't any of those, he is taste-testing the tall, medium, and short grasses.

Now that he is a bigger Snowball, he eats a bigger variety of things.  Like cookies!  He is funny, though.  Sometimes he gets so excited over having cookies, he forgets to open his mouth, and then the cookie can't get in.  He drops it on the ground.  And someone else (ME) eats it!
