Ready for the new season
The white truffle season is almost upon us and even though it’s still far too hot here in Le Marche to be thinking about hunting there is a definite air of excitement as September approaches.
I am booked and ready for my first three-month stint in the UK and the dogs and hunters are raring to go. Last year’s pups are now 10 months old and will be making their debut this season. Rosa, the wire-haired pointer has shown exceptional promise in her training over the summer. In fact Giovanni thinks she is the smartest, keenest young dog he has ever come across since he trained his first puppy back in 1990.
We’ve also had three new additions to the dog squad – Ragnar, Lady and Ira who were born in May. That’s Lady in the picture, she’s only three months old but we can tell she’s got a great nose!
