Anderson Cooper, that Vanderbilt descendent who makes the news watchable, has a new puppy. The puppy's name is Lilly and she is here to provide companionship to Cooper after the passing of his dog Molly a few months back. Lilly is very lucky for she can snuggle up with Anderson Cooper whenever she pleases.


One day soon Lilly will grow up to be this much cuter:

More or less. Those are different dogs, after all.

It was only a few years (OK, decades) ago that this silver fox was himself a little pup.

Around 21 or 22, when the gray hair started #tbt
