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!

Uncle Shermy

See Uncle Shermy sitting in a little hollow he's made by the fence?  What can I say about Uncle Shermy?
Sometimes Shermy is a nice guy, and other times, well ... he's not.  I guess we McLambies are a lot like people.  Sometimes we all get along.  Sometimes we don't.  And sometimes we are jealous of each other.

Poor Uncle Shermy is often bitten by the Green-Eyed Monster!

He is also a Pocket Biter!  He bites Mom's pocket.  He thinks he can get the cookies out that way.  But all he does is turn them to crumbs, and we don't like that!

Dad says Uncle Shermy has a Roman nose.  I'm not sure what that means, but Mom agrees with him.  But Shermy is a good, solid lamb with a nice shape.

Shermy is the second oldest of the McLambies.  When he came, he was very bug-eyed, so I hear, and he was pretty scared of most everything.  He learned to take cookies pretty quickly.  But he still didn't like to be petted and scritched.
Since we little guys have come, SUDDENLY Uncle Shermy loves to be petted and scritched and he will stand and stand while Mom scritches him.  There's hope for Uncle Shermy yet!
