She is my best friend


On Friday, in a heartbreaking, handwritten letter addressed to "a few thousand friends I have not met yet," Fiona Apple announced that she is postponing the South American leg of her tour due to the ill-health of her beloved pit bull, Janet—a 13-year-old rescue dog suffering from Addison's disease and, more worryingly, a tumor on her chest

I am busy tidying and sorting my posessions, decluttering, and yesterdal I found a box of photos.

And I saw my dog. Dill the Dog, Ridgeback/German shepherd mix. I had him sing he was a tiny puppy, one of twelve, trying to climb up a chair to get to me. I chose him because he seemed the most adventurous of the bunch, but not at all agressive.

And I never regretted that choice. Like Fiona Apple's dog, he saw me through bad times and good, and taught me a lot.

So I understand absolutely what she's saying. Her dog is a person, part of her family, as much as a sister, or a child. They have to be together on this last journey, you have to keep on sharing the trust and the support, and the love, you can't just walk away, what would that make you?

Applause.
