After her husband Vic was diagnosed with multiple sclerosis, Northern Michigan author Mary Lynn Swiderski began writing down his life’s stories. Together, before his death, they published a children’s book, Barney the Farm Dog: A True Story to share the tales of Vic and his dog. A portion of the proceeds from the book will be donated to the Michigan Chapter of the National Multiple Sclerosis Society. In 1970, when Vic was 18, his parents bought Brewer Farm in Leonard, Michigan. The historical landmark is a centennial farm, and Vic helped his parents work the fields and tend to the animals. Barney, a Saint Bernard, came to the farm a year later. For the rest of the story, please click here.
