Lambert the Family Sheep

For those of you looking to shed a few pounds, just imagine if you could drop eight pounds in five minutes. It's possible, that's if you are a sheep.

This isn't something you see every day, but this isn't just any sheep. The Burns family of Tallahassee says they were "sold" on Lambert when they met him three and a half years ago at the North Florida Fair.

“He likes to sit and put his head on your shoulder, and he'll stay there for 20 to 30 minutes if you let them.”

In fact, Lambert even goes on daily walks.

“We walk down the street and people stop and look at us and we tell them, ‘they told us he was a standard poodle!’ “

But the four legged furry fella is unknowingly in for an extreme makeover, and the Burns' know just how to coax him in the right direction, but just in case he thought someone was trying to pull the wool over his eyes, we gave Lambert a chance to comment.

So he's a little sheepish, but what do you expect? Regardless, it's shear time! In matter of minutes, 300 pound Lambert lost about eight pounds.

All done! It’s hard for Lambert to contain his excitement as he struts his stuff. Maybe it's because he knows this is how it ends. No surprise, the Burns family washes Lambert in Woolite.
