Yesterday, Fiona Apple sadly announced she would be canceling her South American tour, because her rescue pit bull has become very ill.

The talented singer wrote a four page letter on Facebook expressing her deepest sorrow for letting fans down, but also explained she needs to be with her pooch.

Her 14-year-old dog, Janet, has been sick with Addison’s Disease and for about two years now she has had a tumor in her chest. Apple rescued the pit bull after she was discovered in Los Angeles’s Echo Park with a rope around her neck and bites covering her body. At the time, it was found that four-month-old Janet was used for dog fighting.

Well, now Apple feels she can’t leave her side and as she explains, “Janet has been the most consistent relationship of my adult life, and that is just a fact.”

Janet has also been an inspiration for Apple’s music, “She was under the piano when I wrote songs, barked any time I tried to record anything, and she was in the studio with me all the time we recorded the last album.”

Apple noticed Janet’s status declining since her last tour and she can’t take the chance in leaving her. She wrote, “She’s my best friend and my mother and my daughter, my benefactor, and she’s the one who taught me what love is. I can’t come to South America. Not now.”

“But I know that she is coming close to point where she will stop being a dog, and instead, be part of everything. She’ll be in the wind, and in the soil, and the snow, and in me, wherever I go. I just can’t leave her now, please understand,” Apple explains.

She goes on to detail their relationship and how important it is for her to be home with Janet at this particular moment. To read Apple’s full letter, click here.
