Bonnie Chapman, the daughter of Duane Chapman, best known for “Dog the Bounty Hunter,” took to Twitter to share that she almost lost both of her dogs.

On October 9, the daughter of Duane and the late Beth Chapman shared on social media a message that scared some of her followers. She admitted that she “almost lost” her two dogs that night.

It has been a challenging year for Bonnie.

Bonnie “almost lost” her dogs

Bonnie added in the same tweet that she was thankful to have them with her and “in good shape.” Several people probably thought that her dogs had gone missing, and she had found them. However, she clarified the situation in a different tweet.

Duane’s daughter pointed out that they had not gone missing. Instead, they rummaged through the trash and ate some toxic things for dogs while she was out of her house


Some of her followers admitted to being worried about her dogs. One of them wrote:

"I can only imagine how stressed you are! Hope your night calms down!"

Even though she didn’t share more details, the dogs probably started feeling ill because she ended her message with: “both are now starting to return to normal.”


She was hospitalized

Bonnie’s stressful moment with her pets took place a few weeks after she was taken to the hospital due to her ongoing back pain. Days after being released from the hospital, she admitted to being in "a bit of pain."

She shared the news of her hospitalization on her Instagram Stories earlier this month by uploading a photo showing a hospital bracelet on her wrist with the phrase, “finally home.”

She lost her mother, Beth Chapman

It has been a challenging year for Bonnie. Not only because of her health issues and the problems with her dogs but also because she lost her mother on June 26.

During her memorial service that took place at the Heritage Christian Center in Aurora, Colorado, on July 13, Bonnie received a standing ovation for her speech to her late mother.


Bonnie’s touching tribute to Beth

She reportedly described the well-known bounty hunter as "the most beautiful woman that ever lived." At some point, she couldn’t hold back her tears in front of the big crowd. After that, she spoke about how strong her family was and added:

"I admire every single one of them. They’ve all been pulling together for my father, who has been doing the hardest job."

Although those words were beautiful, the audience gave Bonnie a standing ovation when she said that nobody would be a bounty hunter in heels or a mother as great as Beth used to be.

At the moment, Bonnie is promoting her work as a makeup artist. She revealed on Twitter that her back problems prevented her from working her regular job.
