Dog the Bounty Hunter, real name Duane Chapman, has a dozen kids. And several of them got together for a heartwarming moment over Thanksgiving.

On Saturday, Dog’s daughter, Cecily, took to social media to share a snap taken with two of her siblings, Garry and Bonnie. The pic shows the trio all smiles posing in front of some festive holiday trees at Busch Gardens – Williamsburg. While it’s always moving to see siblings sharing a heartfelt moment together, it was the caption that really brought out the emotion.

Cecily dedicated much of the post to their late mother, Beth Chapman.

“Got my two for this holiday @mrsdog4real 💕 Family over Everything!” Cecily writes. “Thank you @richardmooreva for always making magic happen your truly a wonderful person and a great friend, I’m forever great full for these moments.”

She continued by mentioning how it brings her deep joy to know that her siblings will always be by her side. “Bonnie and Garry I know our mom is so proud of you both and the fact that we will always be together fills my heart and it’s important we do what makes us happy. No matter what I’ll always be proud of you guys not many can say that they’ve been threw [sic] what we have. Sissy loves you guys so much,” she concluded.

Emotion Reactions to Cecily’s Post

Fans showered the post with comments about the emotional moment. “Beth’s babies all together ❤️❤️❤️ she would be proud of three of you loyalty & family most important ♥️,” one fan wrote.

“I am happy for you❤ and blessings and prayers🙏 all ways🙏 and your family,” another commented.

On Sunday morning, Cecily followed up the aforementioned post with more pics from the family outing. “More of my favorites from last night with the Crew!” she captioned the post.

Dog and Francie got hitched back in September of this year. Most notably, Dog actually ditched his honeymoon to embark on the manhunt for Brian Laundrie, the primary person of interest in the Gabby Petito Case. However, now that the manhunt has reportedly ended, Chapman hopes to resume his honeymoon. Learn more here.
