Bluey
Birth name Bluey Les Hall
Born June 7, 1910
Australia Rochester, Victoria, Australia
Died November 14, 1939 (aged 29)
Rochester, Victoria, Australia

Bluey (June 7, 1910 – November 14, 1939) was an Australian cattle dog owned by Les and Esma Hall of Rochester, Victoria, Australia, which, according to an anecdotal report, lived 29 years, 5 months and 7 days, but the record is unverified.[1] Bluey's diet included regular meals of kangaroo and emu.

Perhaps coincidentally, Bluey's owner Esma Hall lived to age 103. Rumours that she was fed on a diet of kangaroo and emu herself are unsubstantiated.

Another dog, Bramble, from Somerset, England, lived for 27 years on a vegetarian diet.[2]
