We recently had to say a sad farewell to our Max. He had made it to the grand old age of 17, having retired 4 or 5 years ago as a truffle hound. He came to us aged 3, rescued from the dog pound in Dublin and was taught to find truffles at 7 when a previous dog, Bramble, retired. As well as finding a great number of truffles for sale, Max entertained and demonstrated his skills to our truffle hunting customers for many years in Dorset and then additionally in Wiltshire.
A party of guests in the below group said in their thank you email:
On behalf of the four of us , we would like to thank you and Max for a fabulous day truffle hunting! In every respect it was educational, beautiful scenery, excellent company, great food and we found loads of truffles! Max has to be the star of the show of course, we all fell in love with him! and your lovely manner, stories and anecdotes were just the icing on the cake! The great experience will always be memorable for us and we shall certainly recommend it to our friends and family as a great day out.
