There are chestnuts everywhere in Brentwood at the moment. The dogs are fascinated - either they're tip-toeing through them all over the floor, or they are attempting to eat or play with them.

Some dogs do this even when they are in their burrs (as I am led to believe the spikey things are called). There is a correct, and an incorrect, way of doing this.

Correct way: Carefully, as demonstrated by Lola.

Incorrect way. As demonstrated by my dog.

Ram it on the end of your nose...

Then carry it about, wondering why your lips hurt.
