For the love of dog: Fiona Apple cancels tour to be with her dying pit bull

Fiona Apple, whose 2012 release The Idler Wheel... just might be the best album of the year, has cancelled her upcoming South America tour to care for her dying pit bull Janet.

The often-tortured 35 year old songwriter posted a note of explanation on Facebook yesterday, which begins: "I have a dog Janet, and she’s been ill for almost two years now, as a tumor has been idling in her chest, growing ever so slowly. She’s almost 14 years old now. I got her when she was 4 months old. I was 21 then, an adult officially – and she was my child..."

You can see the entire handwritten, heartbreaking note here,or go here to read a more legible version of the missive, in which Apple writes "if I go away again, I'm afraid she'll die and i won't have the honor of singing her to sleep, or escorting her out."  See if it doesn't tear you up.
