Sam has a fantastic collection of sticks. Every time he comes back from a walk he has another stick to add to the very organised pile. Some sticks are good throwers, some just feel nice. Some are long, some short but wide, and some of the best sticks don’t have any bark left on them, which makes them feel much nicer in your mouth. The oak branches taste great and last longer, but if you want to chomp one down quickly just for the fun of it, the top sticks for shredding are old damp soft beech that have been lying in the depths of forest puddles for years. This week’s favourite stick is a special piece of driftwood that Sam stole from Pam during a game of throw on the beach, he was very very chuffed with himself.
