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!

Just Hangin' Out

Sometimes we have these great days when there is enough time for everyone to just hang out.  It's so much fun.  Mom and Dad sit with us, and we wander around, and go back and forth to them for scritches and hugs... and cookies!
Sometimes we just put our heads in their laps, or lay our head against their knees.  It's nice.

Uncle Shermy likes to have his head and neck and chest rubbed.  He doesn't usually smile all that much, but he's actually a pretty contented lamby.

Here we see me, Doodle, putting my head on Mom's leg.  She will pet me and scritch me and give me a cookie!  Life is good.

See?  Scritches.  Look at my happy smile!

Awww.  Snowball will always be the baby.  He likes to come up and just sort of lean into Mom or Dad.  He is very sweet-natured and soft-hearted and good.  Don't tell him I said that.

And sometimes, if everyone is quiet and contented... or even if we're not... Mom will sing to us!  It always calms us right down.  You should try it!  Music is good for our lamby souls.
