Mardon created the IW FAQ and the first of 3 current
mailing lists devoted to the discussion of the Irish Wolfhound,
in the days when the internet was just beginning to become part
of ordinary people's daily lives. Not currently a wolfhound owner
himself, Mardon has had a wolfhound in the past, and has always
admired the breed. The FAQ and the List were created to help prospective
and current IW owners learn and share information about this wonderful
This talented artist's head study of her Irish
Wolfhound first embellished the Irish Wolfhound FAQ Mailing List
buttons created in the first fund-raising project, consequently
becoming part of the list and the IWIT logo.
Sontag and Maggie
Katie's post to the list when Maggie crossed the
Rainbow Bridge touched the hearts of all who read it. Maggie was
special to many, as being one of the first wolfhounds on the web,
and leading a lot of enquirers to the mailing list. Katie generously
allowed us to use Maggie's Story
as an integral part of IWIT's second fundraiser.

Maggie's Story inspired artist R.M.Bray to create
the image that was printed on the Maggie "goodies" that
were sold as part of IWIT's second fundraiser. Her own IW, Shonen
is now also gone to the bridge, but the saga of her struggle with
epilepsy helped to inform many that the problem exists in some Irish
Wolfhounds and what it is like to live and deal with it.
Timmy sculpted the beautiful candleholder that
graced the IWIT catalog during phase II of the second fundraiser.
It was particularly appropriate for listmembers, as many are in
the habit of lighting candles for any who are in need of healing
or solace. The image of candles lit in all corners of the world
is at the very least soothing and heartening to those who are worried
or sorrowful, and Timmy's gracious donation of her time and efforts
is much appreciated.
their artwork for the
Greeting Card Project
22 pieces of art were submitted by listmembers
for consideration by the internet Irish Wolfhound Community in
order to create a set of greeting cards. The Community is grateful
for their time and effort, and their generosity..
Without the support and encouragement of the members
of the three Irish Wolfhound mailing lists, as well as that of several
breed clubs, the IWIT would simply not exist. So we would like to
thank all who have supported us, all around the globe.
