Fiona Apple took to her Facebook page recently to reveal to her fans that she's canceled her upcoming South American tour dates. The reason: she needs to care for her dying dog. As she outlines in the personal message, Apple got the now-14-year-old pitbull when she was just 21. And since they have been through much together, she feels she needs to do everything she can to be with her dog in her final days.
