Doesn't Fuchsia look cute?
The plant is a fuchsia, variety David, given to me by my Mum in honour of my dad who died many years ago.

there's a farm on the tenby road with a specialist fuchsia nursery, and their wayside sign reads "your fuchsia in our hands"

before you go signing your life savings over to the wiggle monster check out, they're considerably cheaper on some things and very quick delivery

i would have said a dog.

so is he a cairfolk or a norfairn?

FilbertFox says:

a cairfolk is a damn fine name!

No idea what is in Fuchsia's breeding, she looks a bit like a minature beaded collie but with a sleeker coat a bit like an afghan, and the size of a leggy and very skinny cocker spanial

I've got a David too and it reliably comes back year after year. Pity we couldn't have propagated Dad

FilbertFox says:

yeah sis, then you could have had one down there with you lot, and i could have kept one up here just for me!

Fuscia's gorgeous - both of them. I'd guess the canine to be a Lhasa cross, given her coat and the colour markings - perhaps crossed with English Cocker. What's her personality? Does she regard herself as a watch dog? If so that would be a strong indicator of Lhasa Apso - they were bred for 1000 generations to be a watch dog and they have not lost a single iota of that instinct.

FilbertFox says:

no not a watch dog by any means! She has always been very affectionate, a bit nervy, loves to play with other dogs, looked at us like we are insane when we try to play fetch etc. She plays dumb all the time but really isn't. And when she is on the scent of something you can't see her for dust! She use to scale the fence etc.
Now she is an old lady of 15 and is begining to slow down and is going even more loopy.

She might also have some whippet or something in her because of how fast she runs.
