Fiona Apple‘s dog is sick, prompting the singer to cancel her concert tour so she can be with her pet. The 35-year old American singer announced the cancellation of her tour on her official Facebook on Tuesday, November 20, 2012 via a four-page letter to her fans, as shown in the photo below.

“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.” Fiona Apple wrote on Facebook, along with a photo of her lengthy letter.

Fiona Apple, who released her fourth studio album “The Idler Wheel Is Wiser Than the Driver of the Screw and Whipping Cords Will Serve You More Than Ropes Will Ever Do” on June 19, 2012 in the US, started her show tour last March. She is supposed to have a series of shows in Latin America starting November 27.

According to Fiona, her dog has Addison’s Disease, which makes it dangerous for her to travel since she needs regular injections of Cortisol, and that Janet reacts to stress and to excitement without the physiological tools. The singer noted that her sick dog does not even want to go for walks anymore.

“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…I just can’t leave her now, please understand.” Fiona Apple added, without announcing as to when she will continue her concert tour.

“If I go away again, I’m afraid she’ll die and I won’t have the honor of singing her to sleep, of escorting her out…. So I am staying home, and I am listening to her snore and wheeze, and reveling in the swampiest, most awful breath that ever emanated from an angel. And I am asking for your blessing.” Fiona said further.
