Does Your Heart Have Feet?

One day Lynden decided I wasn't feeling well and to make me feel better he was the doctor.  He took my temperature, gave me medicine, and listened to my heart. 

A few days later, at bedtime, he asked to listen to my heart.  This was our conversation:

Lynden: Does it have feet?

Me: No, hearts don't have feet.

Lynden: Then how does it walk?

Me: It's doesn't walk.

Lynden: Then how does it make that thumping noise?

It's not easy explaining to a preschooler why hearts make thumping noises, nevermind what a heart does.
