2nd Place for Vodka in Truffle Hunt
Story Link
www.oregonwinepress.com wrote:Vodka, a 6½-year-old Dutch shepherd, seemed particularly eager to begin. She strained against her leash, yipping with excitement and whipping her tail, as owner Jenny Thorp kept a tight hold. As soon as master of ceremonies Bob Walker signaled the start of the match, Vodka took off, nose to the ground as she searched for the distinct aromas given off by truffles. In no time at all, she began pawing at a box. A judge helped her search and then held up a stick. The process repeated itself, and, quickly, Vodka completed round one.

Results announced later that evening revealed that Vodka had taken second place.
