Dogs always play a vital role in our lives. And when you hear this tale of one dog adored by author Mary Lynn Swiderski, you’re sure to be filled with wonder and fascination, because Barney the Farm Dog: A True Story is an affectionate account sure to be cherished for a lifetime.

Barney the Farm Dog

The book is a lighthearted tale about a Saint Bernard who has grown to be part of Vic and Mary Lynn’s family. And Barney isn’t alone at the farm—other animals also join him in this uplifting story that’s riddled with endearing moments that make Barney the Saint Bernard such an unforgettable character.

When Barney comes into the life of farmer Vic, he brings both happiness and endearment, along with the other animals in the farm. Vic and Barney make the ideal duo for the story, which also deals with Vic’s struggle with multiple sclerosis. The couple aims to raise awareness of multiple sclerosis, a disease that affects 2.5 million people around the world.


Multiple sclerosis is a result of the immune system attacking the protective sheath that covers the nerve fibers, thus causing problems with the brain, as well as the rest of the body.

In Vic’s case, therapy comes in the form of Barney and his other animal friends at the farm. And the book presents all this through delightful images picked by Mary Lynn herself. Simply put, Barney the Farm Dog is a tale that many children all around the world can learn lessons from.
