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!

Shermy Again

It's Shermy.  The Weisenheimer.
Uncle Shermy used to be very stand-offish and nervous.  Occasionally, he is still like that.  But more and more, he is becoming a good ol' Shermy.

Shermy likes to be petted and scritched and even hugged.  He was not always like this.

He will stand perfectly still and let you rub his face and his big Roman nose.  He has become a complete pushover for Mom!

Here he is, looking.  He has very big bug eyes.  Better to see cookies from a long distance.
Shermy also wants you to know that petting him is like petting a fisherman's sweater.  His wool feels exactly like that.
