Who would spend $12,000 on a dog? Usher would. The singer and songwriter recently purchased a Goldendoodle puppy at a charity auction sponsored by Justin Bieber and his endorsed foundation that helps build schools in impoverished neighborhoods. Usher was in a bidding war with Jessica Szohr for the pup, but beat out the ‘Gossip Girl’ actress by $1,000.
Mr. Raymond has great plans for the Goldendoodle telling Twitter fans, “Poppy Raymond is what I’m think of namin’ her . . . however there are two gregarious 3- and 4-year-olds that will have the last say — and the responsibility that comes with her.” Usher V,4, and Naviyd,3, will be glad to have the newest family member on board.
