Now for some sad news.

According to a lengthy, handwritten letter posted on Facebook, Fiona Apple’s beloved dog is dying, causing her to cancel her South American tour.

She writes that a tumor has been found in the chest of her 14-year-old rescue dog, a pitbull named Janet. The note is pretty heartbreaking, especially towards the end.
