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!

Snowball Struggles With Change, and Doodle Talks Him Through It

Snowball:  I'm not sure I like this new place.  Am I supposed to eat this stick?
Doodle:  Whatsa matter with you, Snowball?  Look around!  The place is filled with all kinds of yummy green things.  Look at the Uncles, chomping away!

Snowball:  This other stick thing is poking me in the eye.  I don't like it.
Doodle:  Are you nuts?  This place is great, and no ponies to torment us like at the last place!
Snowball:  Yeah, but look over the fence.  I wanna eat THAT grass.
Doodle:  You can eat plenty of that grass every day when Mom and Dad take us places for eating and 'sploring,

Snowball:  *SIGH*  I guess.  I'll try some.

Doodle:  Sometimes you have to help sort the baby out and point him in the right direction!
