We had a pretty good time shuffling truffles in the forest today!

I Adore This Boy!
December 13, 2015 – Da Vinci and his treasures. These truffles made one PNW chef very happy. Finding them was a delight with my favorite “Big Brown” 🙂
OFFICIAL Truffle Pup
December 11, 2015
MacGyver is an OFFICIAL Truffle Dog! Today was his 10th learning session and it was an awesome one! He found five truffles (not pictured because…he is a puppy)!
This boy demands that I operate from a grounded state and with heart-centered action…in anything we do together. I am so proud of this pup and our developing partnership. Our path has been nontraditional and “outside the box”, one of reciprocal learning based on organic conversation, respect, transparency, intuition, and mindful action in the present moment. Dogs are amazing teachers!
The newest member of my truffle dog crew in action! This is MacGyver’s first truffle hunt and it was awesomely fun to see how he put all the pieces of this game and our foundation training together. He offered to include the “face down” at the truffle and I LOVED it!
MacGyver finds his first truffles after just 10 sessions with truffle odor!
It’s Never About The Truffle!
November 1, 2015 – My heart is so full of gratitude for the JOY Cash brings to everything we do. “It’s never about the truffle!”
We hunted down truffles until the very end of a sweet season. Finding treasures until June 7th…not bad! The undergrowth has grown too thick to maneuver in our favorite spots. My crew and I are officially transitioning to our off season mode. Callie and I had fun and worked very hard for these 3 small truffles today…just enough to let MacGyver take a whiff 🙂
Callie Working on Lummi Is.
Working at our Lummi Island “office” today. Callie found some Oregon black and spring white truffles for Chef Blaine Wetzel.
