    Why are non-blue dogs named Blue?

    I keep meeting lovely red and brown and white dogs named Blue. Just wondering...

    Well, not literally but there are a number of dogs called blues, which have black, white, and grey speckled markings which make them look a bit blue. Queensland Blue Australian cattle dogs for instance or blue hounds or blue merle Australian Shepherds.

    I've had and loved a number of blues, so it just makes me wonder. Kind of like meeting a white dog named Purple.

    Ah ok I'm more of a cat person, I know there is the Russian Blue cat but didn't realise there were 'blue' dogs too.

    Maybe lots of people just like the name Blue. As it's a little out-there for a person, they use it on their dogs instead. Or maybe the dogs have blue eyes?
