I have many things to be thankful for this Thanksgiving Day, but few of them as much as this little red dog who completely changed my life. Before work yesterday, I read Fiona Apple’s letter to her fans explaining that she has to cancel her tour because her dog is dying. It was one of the most beautiful things I’ve read in a long time, and it put words to many of the things I feel about Luce. You should absolutely read it, but bring a box of tissues. You’ll probably need them.
She is my best friend, and my mother, and my daughter, my benefactor, and she’s the one who taught me what love is.
