Fuchsia - colour of the day - do dogs see in colour?

I have been alwyas interested in colours- meaning and chromotherapy (sometimes called color therapy, colorology or cromatherapy). I believe colours make our life more enjoyable and help us to feel better. So can dogs perceive colours? I used to believe, that dogs see everything in black and white only. Yet, it is not true! As we can read on Huffington Post:
Scientists have long known that dogs' eyes are physically equipped to perceive colors, and consequently that canines are not colorblind. But dogs are believed to see only shades of yellow, blue, and gray. That's because their eyes have only two types of color-sensitive "cone" cells as compared to three in the human eye.
Well, my dog's new sweater colour is fuchsia. My dog probably does not see it, but still I can imagine that in some time new research may be conducted and new surprising results may be revealed. Fuchsia colour comes from the plant:
The Fuchsia is an ornamental plant commonly known for its beautiful flowers. Fuchsia flowers are extremely delicate and look very similar to earrings. Fuschia flowers come in many different colors including: white, red, pink, violet, orange, yellow, and many other colors. There are more than one hundred different species of Fuchsia, and more than eight thousand different varieties and hybrids. One of the most popular is the Fuchsia Hybrida, which was created by crossing Fuchsia Globosa with other species of the plant. The Fuchsia plant is a native of South America, and in some countries is known as the Earring plant.
