Our fox from the Haute Provence

Our fox from the Haute Provence

We have just arrived at our holiday home when we meet “Fuchsie”, my summer love. At first I am not even sure what this creature is. Is it a dog? Is it a fox or even a hyena? I hover between fascination and concern. Is this creature going to attack me? Is it dangerous or is it afraid of me?
