Dexter at the Observatory Hill foray

Truffle dog Dexter, deified in Daryl Thompson’s carving (wedding gift to Brooke & Dayton), was still in training when we were at the Observatory Hill foray. Dexter got a treat every time he found a truffle (mostly false ones, anyway). When Dexter found Onygena, he got nothing! “We won’t train him to look for owl pellets,” said Brooke. Still, it was Dexter’s best find that day.
