Anderson Cooper is involved with an organization called Puppies Behind Bars, where prison inmates raise service dogs that are then given to wounded war veterans and those suffering from PTSD. Anderson has been following one dog in particular since he was a puppy that was named after him. The dog was trained by an inmate for the last year or so and is about to graduate and be given to a veteran, so Anderson welcomed Anderson onto his show! Anderson the dog was very well behaved, and after covering Anderson the person with licks to the face, he showed off his coolest trick -- a soldier salute!
It appears that naming animals after talk show hosts is a hot new trend -- just ask Mary Lou King, a dairy farmer and nurse from Pennsylvania who recently named two new calves Ripa and Strahan! Read more about it here!
