IWITSpecial Thanks

Mardon Erbland
Canada

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 breed.


Rhonda Jorgenson
Canada

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.


Katie Sontag and Maggie
U.S.A.

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 Ralfe
South Africa

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.
