If you were a true fan of the Dog and his family, you would know that it was Not Baby Lyssa but her sister Barbara "Katy" Chapman that passed on.

And for those of you that have not lost a family member prior to another planned important event, the only way to honor that person is to go own with your plans and life. I am sure his daughter would have wanted them to go ahead with the wedding. Just as the rest of his children did.

I say if you can't say something positive why waste your energy and ours in having to see the negative comments.

Good Luck and God Bless to the Chapman family

I want to ask "Dog" Chapman for a job. I retired from the U.S. Army in 2003, then worked in Afghanistan and Iraq for 3 years and returned to find that my wife of 20 years spent every penny I made and was cheating on me the whole time. She turned my three daughters against me and they don't call or speak to me anymore. I was stationed in Schofield Barracks for 3 years from 1994 to 1997 and loved it in Hawaii and I think I can really be an asset to "Dog",Beth, and the whole Bounty hunting team. I also have a Top Secret clearance.

First of all, for the last time it was not baby Lisa that died!
Secondly, Congrats to Dog and Beth for your successful wedding.
I am horribly sorry for the loss of your daughter. She WOULD have wanted you to go on with the wedding. You did the right thing. I bet with all my heart she was right there with you and Beth at the wedding. Just remember, she is in the loving arms of the Lord now. Once again, congradulation and my sympathies.
Congrats to dog and Beth

Does anyone know how hold the daughter was and when exactly the accident occurred. This apparently wasn't Beth's daughter. Was she ever seen in any of the episodes?

How old was the daughter that passed away. I don't recall her being on the show was she? How long was the dog married previous to being with Beth?

I am sure Baby Lisa would have wanted Dog and Beth to marry as planned. She seemed so happy for them as a couple. No one should judge others except for the almighty himself

Dog, Beth and Family...you guys rock! Congratulations on your wedding...and may I extend my deepest sympathy for the loss of Barbara Katy. I gave up bounty hunter training to take care of my ailing grandfather until his death and I don't miss an episode or re-run of your show, all the time wondering what my life would have been like had I become a bounty hunter. I hope the producers give you everything to need to continue televising your hunts...your show and Nascar are the only reasons I have cable TV...Keep on keeping on...Love you all...

Dog and Beth know in their hearts that they did the right thing otherwise they would not have done it - this person must not watch their show and truly know them - thats too bad

i got really upsat to read that people think that duane & beth's wedding should not have taken place, because of the loss the family had that day. i dont know the family but feel for sure that Barbara would have not wantted it to be called off. as dog said there is a time to grive and grive they did but duane and beth deserved the wedding. i seen the hurt in all of there eyes he did no disrespect to barbara .. the show was great and beth you were breathtaking. i myself am a recovering drug addict and am glad we have people like the Chapmans in this world belive me they do make a difference.
ROCK ON TO ALL U CHAPMANS PS i myself am a chapman
