Beth died of lung cancer in June 2019 at the age of 51.
Reflecting on her final days, Dog admitted that he wasn’t ready to say goodbye to his wife.
He said: “There was no planning. There was no, ‘You’re gonna die,’ Let’s plan it. So what do I get? Where did you put the watch? There was none of that.”
Dog told his wife: “Beth, I do not want to hear about death. You’re not gonna die. You are not gonna die.”
He also opened up about his final moments with Beth when the doctors brought her out of her coma.

The Dog the Bounty Hunter star said: “They brought her out of the coma and I said, ‘You’re gonna go see my mom. You’re gonna go see your daddy. And Bethy, you’re gonna see Barbara Katie.’”
“She would not look at me because all of a sudden she knew I had given up and I was her last hope.”
Dog’s daughter Barbara Katie died in 2006 in a tragic car accident.
The reality star paid tribute to his late daughter on Instagram in May on the anniversary of her passing.
He captioned a photo of Barbara Katie with her son: “15 years ago today My Barbara Katie went to be w/ JESUS.”

Dog continued: “I wonder why they go tell people when they’re dying, ‘Don’t worry. You’ll make it through Christmas.’ They know you’re not.
“There’s things I hold forever in my heart that I should’ve done, right. Let me tell you. No one knows what it’s like.”
Adding that he and Jesus have their “own thing going,” Dog said: “I laid it all out. I said, ‘You think I followed you for the last 40 years. You give me a woman now that I can have and I’ll split the red seed for you, Jesus.”‘

Who was Dog Bounty Hunter’s wife Beth Chapman and how did she die?
BETH Chapman, who was married to Duane “Dog” Chapman, died last year after battling cancer for years.
The couple had two children together, Bonnie and Garry, but their family included another 10 children from previous marriages.
Beth was first diagnosed with stage two throat cancer in November 2017 and it later worsened to stage four.
She passed away in June of 2019.
Dog sadly confirmed her passing on Twitter, writing “it’s 5:32 in Hawaii, this is the time she would wake up to go hike Koko Head mountain.”
“Only today, she hiked the stairway to heaven. We all love you, Beth. See you on the other side.”
When the host asked how Dog’s children have been, he admitted that that are having a hard time one year after Beth’s death.
Dog said: “Beth passed away, so they’re devastated still over that. It’s a year real soon. And so everyone is still going through grief and stuff like that.”
Dog, who’s real name is Duane Chapman, began to tear up and said: “It seems like each and every crisis, and I’m really a lucky guy.
“There’s a reason God brings me out of it- or something brings me out of it.”
