Caesar Cipher

Description

A caesar cipher is a substituion cipher in which each letter in the plaintext is replaced by a letter some fixed number of positions down the alphabet. For example:

With a caesar shift of 3, "Hello" would become "Khoor".

If you get to the end of the alphabet, you loop back to the the start. For example:

"Zebra" with a shift of 2, would become "Cheud"

Question

A message has been encrypted with the caesar cipher, the ciphertext is "dssohv", what was the plaintext? (You will have to work out the key shift too) (Give answer in all lowercase, no spaces)
