I went with my friend Nese yesterday, to visit her mum, who also lives in my village of Selimiye here in Turkey. Her mum has recently adopted a small lamb that it was thought was not going to make it. Thanks to Nese’s mum, this little lamb rescue is thriving!
It had to be fed all through the night for a couple of weeks and is now on just a few feeds a day.
It is sharing the home with a couple of dogs and the Spaniel has taken it under its wing, so to speak. Now the lamb thinks it is a dog: it is so comical.
When the dog runs to the gate to bark or welcome a visitor, so does the lamb. It demands attention while it is bouncing around your legs. It sleeps in the dog basket or jumps on the sofa to sit with you.
When it comes to Nese’s mum, it loves nothing more than to be picked up and sleep nestling into her neck.
This sweet little lamb is not going to leave the house: he has a lovely garden to roam, plenty of grass to eat and he has other four legged friends, even if they do not look the same as him. Anyway, Nese’s mum would miss him too much.
This is what I absolutely love about village life, the unexpected!
