For those who have had the pleasure of knowing him, Barry (The Studio Dog)

has been an integral part of our lives since November 4, 2008.

A loving companion and best buddy, he has enriched our lives...

as well as every FMS studio session...since his arrival as a puppy.

These popular original songs and arrangements were collected from Tom's albums (2008 to 2023)

remembering Barry...his love, his companionship and the great moments...

Written, Produced, Performed, Engineered, and Mastered by Tom Farley
