Total Sweetness

Look who came to work today.


Our local pediatric PA has a side gig. He and his family tend the sheep on Nash Island. Inevitably, their spring trip to Nash Island yields little lambs whose mommas aren’t up to the task, and they must be bottle fed if they’re going to make it. He carts the abandoned babies back to the mainland. They spend the weekdays tucked into a makeshift pen behind his office so they can be bottle fed throughout the day.


Three days a week I work out of an office next to where these little cuties hang out. After hearing the bleat of a lonely lamb from the window, I had to investigate and check out this year’s batch of babies. Total sweetness!
