Dog the Bounty Hunter was an American reality television series on A&E which chronicles Duane “Dog” Chapman’s experiences as a bounty hunter. With a few exceptions, the series took place in Hawaii or Dog’s home state of Colorado.
Production and airing of the show was halted by A&E on November 2, 2007, after an audio tape was released, featuring Duane Chapman using the “n” word repeatedly in a discussion with his son regarding Tucker’s black girlfriend’s.
Since the show’s cancellation, Dog’s wife Beth were recently hit with a scary diagnosis…stage II throat cancer. Apparently, Beth has been dealing with a bad cough that doctors found was caused by a tumor in her throat. The growth will require immediate surgery as it is blocking her breathing.
She says: “I’ve been dealt my share of unexpected blows over the course of my almost fifty years but nothing as serious as the one I heard from my doctors two weeks ago when they uttered those dreaded three words, ‘You have cancer.’”
“I’ve stared down the devil more than once in my life but I’ve never faced a real life or death decision. My life has never been easy, and I surely don’t expect it to start now. Still, I’ve never been a victim and I won’t let cancer beat me. I realize the road I am about to travel will be rocky, full of unexpected twists and turns. But I know one thing for sure. A bend in the road is not the end of the road.”
