Eco and I were out for our daily walk when suddenly I'm aware of a clicking sound - like when the tip of your high heel has come off and you're walking on the nail. I looked down at Eco but she was just trotting along, not limping or favouring a foot - but still the clicking persisted, so I stopped her and like a ferrier I picked up her right back leg - all looked fine, then I picked up her left back leg and saw that the pad was shiny, what? - and when I touched it off popped a hazelnut shell!
Eco had somehow managed to perfectly step on the shell and the shell had somehow managed to perfectly fit on her pad and so she carried on, happily out for her daily walk.
I had flicked the shell to the ground, but after two steps I decided to return to pick it up and take a better look at it. And to take a better look at how it perfectly fit on her foot pad. And I chucked to myself for a little while at the silly coincidence. Have you ever had something like that?
