Reading with Rover!

There is an exciting program here in the Northwest that involves kids, dogs and literacy. The program is calledReading with Rover.

Reading with Rover is a community-based literacy program volunteering in the schools, bookstores and libraries in the Puget Sound area of Washington State. It is our goal, as volunteers and founders of Reading with Rover, to make the "Rover" program available to all schools, reading and learning facilities that would like to enhance their reading programs.
In the "Rover" program, children with reading difficulties actually read stories to a dog and the dog loves listening! A child who may be hesitant to read aloud to his peers is typically less stressed when reading to a dog and the dog never judges the child's reading ability.
Implementing the program takes time, money, and more importantly, it takes good people with good dogs to succeed!

New Scruff Website coming up!!!!

Thanks for all your feedback! 

We're always trying to improve Scruff MacDuff, so we've taken your suggestions and made a brand new site! We're going to launch it in August, along with plenty of offers.
It is much easier to use and the check-out is a lot more streamlined. We'll still have all your favourites and lots of seasonal goodies, so do come visit. We hope you love it as much as we do!

Quick Update from Graham Povey

Hello ScruffMacDuff! ...just a line to let you know how the kit is holding up!..

Very stable and well designed in general...works very well even though this is quite an extreme test for any Dog Kit. ...only problems so far are minor...rubbing on top of paws from boot fastening where it crosses-over (but we are walking from dusk to dawn in very rough terrain) ...and Panniers prone to wear from scuffing on rocks on the narrow very rocky high trails and ravines. .. in geƱeral this kit is excellent and very stable and practical! ...

An update from Graham and Shadow


OTIS the pug flies through the air strapped to owner Will Da Silva - in his 64th tandem skydive.

The ten-year-old dog wears special goggles for the parachute leaps from thousands of feet above LA.
Will said: "He seems to love it.
"He's having a ball like a dog with his head out of the car window."
