Hello world


Hello, my name’s Bluey and I’m an Australian Stumpy Tail Cattle Dog.

I live on a farm in the country with all my friends. This year I’m going to Sydney for the first time.  I’m going to be part of the Sydney Royal Easter Show.  I’m not too sure what I have to do, but I’m very excited.

The reason they call me “stumpy” is that I have a very small tail, it certainly doesn’t mean I’m short. I’m actually rather handsome and very clever.

Sorry, have to go I can hear my master calling and I have work to do on the farm.



The Last Show


Only one more sleep and then the last show.  I’ve had a great time even though it’s rained some nights.

Tomorrow is the last show and I’m feeling a bit sad that it will all be over.  I’ve had a great time, even wearing the make-up was okay.  I’ve worked with lots of great people and I love i when you all sing with me at the end.

Off to bed now, very tired.  I’m looking forward to the last day and then home to the farm again.

Back to being a working dog.

See you at the Show one more time.


The Grand Parade


I’ve just been watching the Grand Parade. It was wonderful.  All those horses and cattle and even pigs.  I loved it.

Have to go – on stage in an hour.

See you at the Show


The Show goes on


Well it rained tonight, but I didn’t care. We all still went out there and told our story even though it was a bit soggy. Rain doesn’t stop a working dog. The cattle were a bit skittish, but with the help of my friends it was still alright.

See you at the Show.


Tired but excited


I’ve been so busy that I haven’t had any time to tell you what I’ve been doing. Every night I’ve been going into the NAB Arena and for the last three nights I’ve been sharing the spotlight with John Williamson.
It’s been great. Everyone singing along when he played True Blue.

Some people cry when I lose my best friend Jess, but at the end after a lot of travels, I find her at last.

Off to bed now. Very tired out.

See you at the Show


Only one more sleep


At last – tonight’s the dress rehearsal and I finally get to show you what I’ve learnt. It’s so exciting and I can’t wait. And then tomorrow I will see all my new friends.

See you at the Show – soon.


a poem from Robyn


Robyn wrote this poem about me – I really like it.  There’s lots more on Facebook – check us out on the Sydney Royal Easter Show Group

Round that bloody sheep up “Blue”
Watch that old cow too.
Bring him round that’s a boy.
I’ll open the gate
You chase him through!!!
Nip him on the heals mate.
Make him move like hell
Bark a bit, intimidate
Ah ya doing well!
Bring the cattle down now mate
Watch that flamin snake!
Bring the cattle round boy
Gently as you go.
Don’t want a darn stampede mate.
They’d go over the cliff you know!!
Got a juicy steak mate
Back at the homestead just for you.
I really do appreciate mate.
Everything you do..

Dogs can read


Many people think that humans are the only ones that read the paper – but they’re wrong. I read all of the Official Fun Guide that was in the Sunday Telegraph an here’s a picture to prove.

See you at the Show

More Practice

Me and my friend Silver

Me and my friend Silver

Here I am with one of my friends. His name is Silver (he’s actually black) – don’t know where the silver came from. He and I are learning to mark. He’s quite good at it and now after some practice, so am I.

See you at the Show


Read all about me



I’m in the paper today again.  I know because I saw my master reading it on the verandah.  I siddled along the edge and then jumped up next to him so he dropped it on the ground.  Then I got a really good look.  Seems I’m on the front page and some more inside.

Today I’m having a bit of a rest, a snooze behind the cowshed and a bit of swim this afternoon.  Then it’s back to training hard on Monday.

Smokey says he’s also training. He says he’s practicing diving off the windmill into the water tank.  I still think he’s making it up.

See you at the Show


Meeting John Williamson


Wow,  I’ve just been out to the big Sydney Showground and met John Williamson. He’s the bloke who wrote the words of True Blue.  He didn’t know me when he wrote it, but now we are best friends.  We rolled around on the grass a bit and then he sang me the song.

It was great.

See you at the Show
