Iw -- The Irish Wolfhound Mailing List

English (USA)

About Iw

This is the Irish Wolfhound Mailing list that was begun years ago by Mardon Erbland, owner of the original IW FAQ page (now no longer in existence) at sashimi.com, and was passed by Mardon to Alan Cowan (wolfhound.com/cuenet.com) when Mardon was no longer able to keep up with administration of the list. When Alan passed away in December of 2000, Brigitte Avarmaa took up the administration task, leaving the list hosted at cuenet.com, until July of 2003, when Cuenet ceased operating its business. Presently the list is operating due to the generosity of the Kingston Linux Users Group (http://www.klug.on.ca/) administrators, on their Mailman listserver.

This is an unmoderated list, and operates under a policy and philosophy of free expression. The list usually has anywhere between 200 and 350 members located from Alaska to Auckland and all points in between.

!!! Important !!!

Advertising of adult or puppy Irish Wolfhounds (or any other breed of dog or any other animal) for sale is prohibited. The list is not a marketing venue. This is not to say that *** established *** members may not announce litters or share information about new or planned litters, and this is encouraged in that it provides insight to the processes that good breeders go through in making the decisions that they do. Many do, and generally also let the list know that all puppies are spoken for at the time. Established listmembers are defined as those who have been active in list discussions of other Irish Wolfhound issues that may not directly pertain to breeding. The List Administrator reserves the right to determine if someone joins the list for the sole purpose of announcing a litter and any action taken is discretionary.

*** Limited *** advertising of Irish-Wolfhound or dog-related artwork, crafts, things like grooming tools, etc., is permitted as long as it is not blatantly commercial, and website addresses may always be included in signatures.

!!! Important !!!

Please also note that the posting of phone numbers, other contact information, or other details of Irish Wolfhounds that are in need of Rescue is potentially dangerous to the very hounds in need of such rescue. Though such posts are usually very well-meant, this has, in the past, led people who had been rejected for adoption due to their own unsuitability, who might be lurking on the list, to acquire a pup from an unsuspecting shelter or naive breeder. If you come across this kind of situation and need guidance as to what you can do to help, please contact the Irish Wolfhound Club of America or the Irish Wolfhound Club of Canada, or a club more local to you, or barring that, send an email to brica@klug.on.ca and let me know the geographic area you are in and your contact information. Someone from Rescue or the list will then contact you directly. DO NOT post any contact information for hounds potentially in trouble to the list.
