Gray Freeman and Brendan Freedog
Gray Freeman is a traveller and writer – and often a travel writer. He lives in south Manchester with his dog, where he sits and writes stuff and then takes his dog for a walk. A long time ago, he focused on writing walking and cycling books. More recently, he has penned a short play about Alzheimer’s, which was staged twice in Manchester. People cried, shook his hand and told him how much they could relate to it. It is currently being recorded as a radio play.
He is the author of Underdogs, the story of how he and his rescue dog Brendan met and went travelling, bonded and became inseparable friends. The sequel, Underdogs II, may well feature the story of how they fell out during lockdown.

Brendan Freedog was a street dog in Bulgaria. He spent his days running up and down cobbled alleys scamming tourists. He was captured and taken to a "kill shelter". He had a number pinned to him through his ear. He was literally on Death Row. He was saved by a charity and brought to Britain in a Transit van. He likes sitting down a lot.
