Dog the Bounty Hunter’s Daughter Lyssa Remembers Stepmom in Touching Throwback Clip

by Jennifer Shea

Lyssa Chapman, daughter of “Dog the Bounty Hunter” star Duane Dog Chapman, is remembering her late stepmom Beth Chapman with a throwback clip of herself breast feeding.

Beth took the video of Lyssa and her daughter, Mady. Moreover, she is in the video telling Lyssa she will prize the video clip in the future.

Lyssa at first seems unhappy with the video. But she later came to realize that her stepmom was right.

“You were right again [Beth],” she posted to Instagram. “I am so happy to have this video, especially to hear your voice.”

Who Was Beth Chapman, Dog the Bounty Hunter’s Late Wife?

Beth Chapman was Dog’s wife and helpmate on the WGN reality TV show “Dog the Bounty Hunter.” It followed the exploits of bail bondsman and bounty hunter Duane Dog Chapman. Beth and Dog had two children together, Bonnie and Garry. But between them they also had 10 children from earlier marriages.

Dog and Beth went public with Beth’s stage 2 throat cancer diagnosis in September of 2017. Beth then went to a hospital in Los Angeles in 2018. There she had emergency surgery to clear a throat obstruction that was blocking her airways, People reported.

Meanwhile, “I knew I couldn’t let it take me over,” Beth told People of the cancer in 2017. “I had to keep moving, every day, moving forward. That’s all you can do when you get a diagnosis like this. So I take it each day at a time. And I’ll fight it with all that I have.”

Then, in 2019, Beth was taken to Queen’s Medical Center in Hawaii. She was put into a medically-induced coma there. Dog released a statement at that point asking “everyone to please pray for Beth.”

Beth died on June 26, 2019, at 5:32 a.m. That was the time she liked to wake up to hike Koko Head Mountain. Dog was by her side, holding her hand, at the time.

Beth Is Mourned and Remembered

“We are deeply saddened by the tragic news that Beth Chapman lost her battle with cancer today,” WGN America, which aired “Dog the Bounty Hunter,” said in a statement then. “She was an exceptional woman, fiercely loyal and passionate about her family and she was a true joy to work with. All of us at WGN America will miss her tremendously. Our thoughts and prayers are with Duane, her family, loved ones and millions of fans.”

Beth’s family has continued to pay tribute to her memory since her death. They have often posted memories and throwback photos to social media.
