Both Dog Chapman and his new girlfriend both have lost their partners to cancer which makes them more understanding partners for one another.
Dog Chapman is finally moving on!
And this time he looks happier than ever. After losing his soulmate Beth to cancer in 2019, Chapman had a rough time coping with the grief. Additionally, there were also familial problems when he was rumored to be a romantic relationship with his friend Moon Angell.
However, everything looks just fine at this point in time. His relationship with his new girlfriend Francie Frane seems to be going great, who has not only supported Chapman but also has been a good friend to his family. Therefore, the 51-year-old bounty hunter has decided to carry the memories of Beth in his heart and move in life.
In an exclusive interview with The Sun, he made some candid revelations about his relationship with Colorado rancher, Francie. Chapman said, "It's going really good. It's a God relationship because it's just like a miracle." He went on, "It's a miracle how we met and it's a miracle how great we're getting along."
He also revealed that while there will "never be another Mrs Dog" by which he was referring to Beth, he wants Francie to be the "last Mrs. Chapman."
And considering how empathetic and supportive she has been, a future together with her seems like a good decision. Francie, who lost her husband to cancer, connected with Dog after Beth's demise and they found solace in each other's company. They also helped each other through their grieving processes.
Chapman revealed, "I know that when I start to feel bad about Beth and it's overwhelming, Francie seems to show up and that helps the kids." He added, "And I feel that Beth expects her to show up to take care of me."
"And Bob, Francie's late husband, expects me to be a man and a gentleman and so I am."
"It's a very real love that we are developing with each other," he went on. "Both of us are allowed to talk about our spouses that are in Heaven - it's not like we're afraid to mention it or anything like that. We console each other but we also know that we have a responsibility and that is to do this right."
Continuing, he said, "There are a lot of people watching us. But throughout the coronavirus which is affecting us all right now, love is prevailing. And that's how we feel."
But he added, "We're taking this day by day, step by step - big steps come in pairs, little steps come in bunches. So that's how we're handling it and how we're doing it."
One of the most special things about this relationship is that his family approves of it. "But what's important now is that my family, my close family, every single one of the kids and grandkids, approve of Francie and that makes a huge difference," Chapman said.
In fact, Lyssa said that they are perfect partners for each other and her mother, would approve the match. "They are both so happy together and they are good for each other," she said according to The Sun. "Francie has been very respectful to all the kids - and to Beth's memory - and my dad is the same way with Bob and their children."
"They go to church three times a week and dad is trying to give up smoking - she is a good woman for my dad. He's the happiest I've seen him in a long time - he's so in love and wants to spend the rest of his life with Francie."
She also added that that have helped each other grow as human beings. "They are both lost their spouses to cancer so they know what it's like to go through that and they are helping each other through it," she added.
"But at the same time they are being very respectful of each other's grieving process and they're not trying to replace each other's partner. Beth would approve - I honestly believe that Beth sent Francie for my dad - I feel like Beth and Bob are up there watching down over them."
We wish Duane Lee Chapman and Francie Frane, a very happy future!
