As she says, being a military wife has advantages and disadvantages. One advantage was obviously the opportunity to live in Munich for three years and do a lot of travel while living here. It goes without saying that visiting all of Europe and places like Egypt are a lot easier to do from Munich than from Canada!
There are also disadvantages of course. The major one: being left alone to worry while our dad is deployed on missions overseas. In all likelihood, unless Canada has a major change in government between now and then, when we are posted back to Canada, our dad will likely have to do a six month tour in Afghanistan. Our mom knows how hard it was the last time our dad was deployed overseas, for a six month peacekeeping mission in Eritrea, and Afghanistan will be harder, since it's a lot more dangerous over there.
We've had a couple of questions about some of our posts this week. So, we will do our best to answer them.
What's an ATC ? ATC stands for Artist Trading Cards. They are small cards that are works of art.
What's a Meezer? Meezer is short for Siamese. Siamese = meez = Meezer. Merlin is a Seal Point and White Sphynx, so he is a pointed Sphynx. All pointed Sphynx get their pointed colour pattern from Siamese ancestry somewhere in their bloodlines. So Merlin is a "Siamese" Sphynx since he is a Pointed Sphynx, and so he's a Meezer, of sorts.
Do Dragonheart and Merlin have Siamese blood? Both of us are purebred Sphynx. We are registered and have our "papers." However, as explained above, all pointed Sphynx have Siamese blood somewhere in their ancestry; it's what gave rise to the pointed colour patterns in the Sphynx breed. Merlin is a pointed Sphynx, so somewhere, generations back, there is Siamese blood in his pedigree. Dragonheart's dam (cat mom) was a blue point Sphynx, so again, there is Siamese blood way back, somewhere in his bloodline. So yes, we both have Siamese, many generations back, in our bloodlines.
We hope that helps answer some of your questions. If you have any more, please let us know!
