When we arrived, Giotto immediately took off as we chased behind him through the trees, hopping over streams and ducking under branches. Occasionally, he would stop at a tree trunk, wag his tail and start digging, looking up at Cristiano when he had found something.
After a few false alarms, we all cheered when Cristiano triumphantly pulled from the ground a small mud covered truffle that would have gone undetected by the untrained eye. Not basking too long in his success, Giotto quickly went back to work and led us to another two truffles before the day was through. Bravo, Giotto!
