Truffle Dog Information
 
 
This gargantuan white truffle was found last winter in Italy, rushed to New York via Milan, and sold for a whopping $7000 in late October, 2007.  The truffle weighed over 6 pounds and was featured in the New York Times.  Such truffles are rare, and can fetch ever more at auction, where truffles often go for two or even three times the market value for sheer publicity’s sake.
