|The card reads "This Irish Wolfhound is a member of the largest breed of dog ever to walk this earth. They have been recorded in history since the year 500 AD and have served mankind as battle dogs, wolf hunters supreme (with speeds up to 30 miles per hour), and of course draft animals of great strength and intelligence.
