Zeno's pets walked forever, yet never seemed to arrive where they were going. What were they?

Hint

The Zeno in question is the ancient Greek philosopher, Zeno of Elea.

This is an answer similar to @Deusovi’s, but potentially maybe phonetically closer?

Zeno’s Pair of Ducks?

The pun is bad, and I feel bad…. Haha.

A tenuous connection at best, but could they be Zeno's

fleas? As in, they can go round and round his head, without ever arriving anywhere. The hint could then refer to Zeno of Flea.
