Losing a dog is hard on anyone. They’re part of the family and when they’re gone, we feel it as we would the death of a human relative. There are many ways to grieve over such a loss. Some cry, some share stories of their beloved dog. For journalist Anderson Cooper, one way to mourn the loss was to share a photo on Instagram.
The photo, above, which features Cooper and his cherished Molly, is at once sweet and very touching. Cooper wrote, “An old picture of my sweet dog Molly, who passed away today.” Fans expressed their condolences, likely not only as admirers of Cooper but also relating to his loss. The photograph has so far garnered over 24,000 likes and more than 2,800 comments.
Molly no doubt was very special to Cooper in both his personal and professional life. She even made an appearance on his daytime talk show.
Molly will clearly be missed.
