The Chapman family is still morning the loss of their matriarch, Beth Chapman, but her husband, Duane "Dog" Chapman, is having a particularly hard time accepting it.


During an exclusive interview with Entertainment Tonight's Kevin Frazier, the bounty hunter revealed that Beth tried to prepare him for her death for the past two to three years.

According to Dog, she knew that her time could come and that he should be fully prepared to live the rest of his life without her by his side.


The 66-year-old told Frazier:

"For two to three years, she knew this might happen. So she would say, 'Who is going to sit next to you?' And I said, 'No one.''Big Daddy, you better not let another girl take my place.' I said, 'I won't.'"


However, Dog claimed that he wasn't prepared nor felt that he was ever prepared to lose Beth. "With any new experience that you have, you don't know how you're doing because you've never experienced it," he said.

Upon learning that she had been diagnosed with stage 2 throat cancer, Beth and Dog started seeing some therapists, but he explained that she had her own way of dealing with heir struggles:


"I needed therapy and the therapy she used when she was sick was to hunt. Her therapy, you know, was hunting, bounty hunting, catching the bad guy."

Dog has returned tot the set of "Dog's Most Wanted" and admitted that it feels completely different, adding that, even though Beth is not physically there, mentally and spiritually she is there.


The grieving husband also said that there is no woman like Beth and there will never be another one like her, hinting that he is not open to having another relationship.

Dog and Beth were together for 30 years and shared a bond and love that is very rare to find nowadays. They were soulmates and Dog even has a tattoo of Beth's name on his chest, right over his heart.
