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!

Baby Bottles


Oh boy!  Oh boy!  We're getting our milk bottles!
***
Actually... it turned out that this was our last ever milk bottle.  Sigh... We were only getting one bottle a day at this time.  I think we were almost 4 months old.  They tell me that most "bottle lambs" are long off the bottle by then.  I tell them:  Yeah, but baby lambs who have sheep mommies are still drinking their mommies' milk.  So there!


Here is Dad giving us our last bottle through the gate.  He and Mom had to feed us through the gate because we were getting big, and, er... we would jump up on them a lot and sometimes knock the bottles on the ground.


It was sure nice getting milk bottles.


Look at our milk mouths!  I wonder whatever happened to our bottles?  Snowball still tries to find a milk bottle.  He pokes people with his pointy nose, looking for milk and cookies.

See my tail wagging?  Lambs wag their tails when they are drinking milk.

It's nice being big Doodles and Snowballs... but it was nice being little ones, too!
