Blue by George Man
Sandra just finished her first year of school in Holland when she found out that her family planned to move to Outback Australia for five whole years! It was going to be a huge adjustment: learning a new language, making new friends, going to school over a radio and dealing with the unpredictably hot Australian weather.
It took a while to feel at home in Australia, but Sandra realised she was where she needed to be the moment she met an Australian cattle dog puppy with the most amazing fluorescent blue eyes. It was obvious, he had to be named “Blue”. After their first meeting, neither of them could get the other off their mind. And so, fate intervened, and soon they would become inseparable.
Blue was the most loyal companion for Sandra. He would do anything for his beloved mistress, and it quickly became obvious that he wasn't just your average cattle dog. He was special. At first, he saved a little boy from a flash flood. Then, he saved Sandra from a wild bull. Soon enough, the whole world knew the name “Blue”, and his fame grew with each feat of heroics he achieved.
But too soon, Sandra and her family had to return to Holland. Five years in Australia had come and gone. And now Sandra would be separated from her beloved companion.
How will she carry on?
