“I thought, ‘What if this was my grandfather needing help?’ Me being able to help, it just felt like the right thing to do,” Coleman-Dancer said.
Though he never had the chance to meet Bo while the dog was alive, that didn't matter to Coleman-Dancer. In a way, he came to love Bo, too — by sensing his lingering presence in Lowe’s heavy heart.
“We became friends,” Coleman-Dancer said. “We connected through Bo.”
Lowe had asked if he could pay Coleman-Dancer for helping, but the teen wanted just one thing in return.
“I told him all I wanted is that photo with him,” he said. Still, Coleman-Dancer got more than just that; he and Lowe had formed a bond.
