Good on you, Charlie.  I hope you remember it in the morning.
 
2013-04-12 12:10:29 AM  
Good for him, and wow, I had no idea companion dogs were so expensive.
 
2013-04-12 12:16:29 AM  
Well, before you start congratulating him for this, he anally raped the girl after the media left, and then gave her a key of pure china white afterwords.

For Fark's sake, he did this four months ago.  The dog is just finally ready for the girl.

This really should have a follow-up tag.

I think it's more the cost of training them. She won't get the dog until Sept. That's a lot of training time.

Very sweet of Charlie to do this. I like when celebs use their money for charitable purposes.
 
2013-04-12 12:26:36 AM  
I'm very happy for the girl, but he still gave $100,000 to Lindsay Lohan.

They have to be extensively trained and the training maintained.

Plus the racists only take certain breeds. A pitt bull mutt would be just as smart a companion dog as a golden retriever and cost $20 from some guy in the ghetto. But no, they pay $1500 for a pure bred golden puppy with all its papers and then neuter the poor thing anyway.

I knew they had some breed restrictions, but I didn't know they only took fully papered dogs, but I guess they just want to be careful.  I've seen people walking around with the dogs in the harnesses with the 'Hi, I'm a dog in training, please don't pet me' warnings, I just always assumed they were volunteers.

It might not be only fully papered, but I'd bet a dollar.

There's something very wrong when donating money to a girl who was terribly injured illicits this question in you.

I blame lawyers for poisoning the zeitgeist with lawsuits and LLCs for protecting scumbags.

I take back any bad thing I said about him. He's a good boy.

This is a very decent gesture. The problem is a health care system that relies on random acts of charity.

It's not just the cost of the puppy but the 1st year of training.  After that it can get even more expensive depending on the next level of training..

There's a difference between a companion dog and a guide dog.  The guide dogs locally trained here are Goldens or Labs or a combination of the two because of the traits that the trainers want.  They then continually breed for those traits which is why the pups are expensive and are mostly of the same breed.  The folks that foster the dogs for the first year are volunteers, too.

Boy is he in for a surprise when he sobers up. He thought he was paying 10k for a teenage girl and her companion.

There are millions of men and women who would accept the former to get the latter.

Hey Charlie - can I have 5 large?
 
2013-04-12 08:53:52 AM  
Good for Charlie, but unfortunately he did not think this all the way through.  Charlie Sheen gets away with all the shiat he does b/c he does it all the time and it's "just Charlie being Charlie..."  About three more good deeds that go public and folks are going to start thinking Charlie Sheen is a good guy and start having expectations for him; and you guessed it "when Charlie is just being Charlie" again many people will be disappointed and outraged...  This is when things get stressful...

2013-04-12 09:14:18 AM  
Jeez, this is a new story? What ride was she injured on? How did Sheen get involved? What does a companion dog do for her? I actually pretty much know the answer to this last question, but you would think a news article would be more complete.

I hope LiLo and Amanda Bynes take notice of how Charlie Sheen is behaving after going tots cray cray.

for the amount of training that goes into them $10k may seem like a lot but it would be hard to get that amount of work-hours combined with 16 to 18 months of care and feeding anywhere else

Seems to me, since his last epic meltdown, Charlie Sheen has been busting his ass to work off some bad karma.

What he must have done to his "angels"...
 
2013-04-12 09:44:24 AM  
"...The family named the dog Charlie in honor of Sheen. "

The dog then started drinking beer out of the toilet and leg-humping anyone wearing a Cheerleader uniform

So, what you're saying is that he needs to get a gumjob from a 77-year-old woman on one of the three stages at a Chuck E Cheese while singing the old Showbiz Pizza song so people quit expecting only good deeds out of him?

Typical liberal Hollywood elitist.

Whatever dumb crap he may have done, this is a very cool thing to do. Good on ya, Mr. Sheen.

If she's getting the dog for her September birthday, what will Charlie give her for all her birthdays in between?
 
2013-04-12 01:40:00 PM  
Okay, HUGE pet peeve of mine.  This is NOT an English (or English Cream) Golden Retriever.  There is no such thing.  It is simply a Golden Retriever with a lighter colored coat.  The terms English and English Cream are a marketing ploy used by unscrupulous breeders to trick the public into thinking that these dogs are rare and/or special.  They are also being called White, Platinum, Alpine, or Nordic Golden Retrievers.   I've even heard of breeders telling people that they are a completely separate breed from the Golden Retriever.

Not to mention the temperament and ease of instruction. I had friends who did the training. Dogs are scaled by not only intelligence, but how goddamn stubborn some of them are. A Jack Russell Terrier is smart as hell, they are also a huge pain in the ass. Labs and Golden Retrievers are super docile and tend to be much more patient and want to please. I love Pitts and Rottweilers, and I have really only ever known sweet and kind natured ones. That being said when it comes to the training and obedience, not to mention the repetitive nature of their training that can bore most dogs to death, I can understand why they choose the Labs and Golden Retrievers.
 
2013-04-12 03:04:45 PM  
so why is Charlie having to donate this money for the dog?  The amusement park should have a new owner IMO.

You know I agree, and I can't believe I'm saying this but maybe he learned a lesson. He did lose his job and public credibility and it is possible that he is just making nice for a bit till he's out of the shiatter. On the other hand as someone who has been on a bender things get weird and you start having irrational thoughts to the exclusion of rational ones and the longer it goes on the worse it gets. When its over if you are any kind of human or intelligent you look back and are genuinely farking horrified by the stuff you did. Charlie was on a loooooooooong long bender and unlike you or I would he had the press in his face almost constantly which I can imagine only made it worse. The fact is he hadn't pulled this kind of shiat in the past and really hasn't since which leads me to think it might have been a one time thing midlife crisis and all. Lohan on the other hand has had more chances than anyone is rightfully entitled to and still she begs to delay her sentence so she can go to Coachella!? Fark her if she were a man, black, lesbian, had a weird religion, or was anything except a cute white girl (yeah I know she is a megaskank now but apparently I'm told she was cute as a child and thats how her moronic fans still see her) they would put her ass under the jail. My thing is I think Charlie Sheen sees how off the rails he got and sympathizes with her situation but doesn't realize they are not even close to alike. He is a dude who farked up made bad choices and then doubled down but when his life was basically ruined he stopped and said whoa maybe I need to settle down a little. She is just a lazy worthless skank, the true definition of never-was its hilarious that when that James Deen guy looks back at his career the low point will be his movie with Lohan. Sorry folks pet peeve I have friends who have done years for shiat this biatch never even saw the inside of a cell for.
