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!

We Have a Shepherdess


Well, it's just Mom.  But she's a girl, so that makes her a shepherdess.  Mom (and Dad) take us for walks and to go 'sploring and things.  They lead us to good grass and they fill our water pail.  And let's not forget the cookies!

Sometimes it's probably boring for Mom, our Shepherdess, to stand around while we eat stuff all the time.  But Dad says it's "lamb therapy."  I'm not sure what that means.


But they keep coming every day to see us and feed us and pet us and give us cookies, so lamb therapy must be a good thing, right?

And our Shepherdess does not come after us with a broom or a stick, either!  Or worse yet... a dog.  Oh, the horror!  To us, a dog looks like a wolf.  Remember that when you see sheep being rounded up and herded by a dog.  They all run together in a bunch like that 'cause they're scared.  Mom and Dad make sure we are never scared.  It's good having that kind of shepherd.  Sorta like THE Shepherd, a little tiny bit.
