Duane 'Dog the bounty hunter' Chapman is still mourning the death of his wife Beth Chapman but shared that his new girlfriend Francie Frane is helping to turn the pain into happiness. 

Chapman took to Instagram to share a picture of Frane. He captioned the picture, "I scream & cry Beth where are you why did you leave me then I look up & see you Francie & the pain turns to a smile I LOVE YOU WOMAN!!" 

Frane also responded via her Instagram Story and shared, "I love you too, babe!" Ever since their romance became public, Chapman has been proudly showing off his girlfriend. Many of his fans and followers commented on his post giving him their blessings and expressing how happy they were for him. 

One such user shared, "May you never forget Beth. Having a woman who encourages you to remember your lost love is a wonderful woman." Another user added, "Hugs to you Dog!! Can’t imagine what your going thorough! My mum lost her one and only love 4 years ago and she still struggles! Do what makes you happy! There’s a reason you and Francie are together you both need each other! I am sure Beth would be happy for you and Beth knows you need someone and this is the angel she sent for you!!"

A third fan added, "Everyone deserves to be loved and be in love. Beth is your greatest love of all time and Francie was sent to you to help ease your pain. God bless your love."

"God knew exactly what you needed at a time such as this. Embrace the love my brother, she is His reminder that He will NEVER leave you! Hugs," another chimed in. 

Earlier this week, he had shared a picture of the two hand in hand walking their dog. "Out enjoying today’s beautiful weather with Lola the bulldog. We walk by faith, not by sight. Living our lives in a manner consistent with our confident belief in God’s promises. 2 Corinthians 5:7," he had captioned the photograph. 

We had earlier shared that Frane had penned a romantic letter to her newfound love and had made a biblical reference in the same. Her letter read, "What we thought was the end has become just the beginning! You are the head and not the tail. I will walk alongside you everywhere God leads us." 

"You are my woman created by my rib, not by my heal and you will walk by my side all the days of our lives," the letter concluded. 

Frane, 51, who is a rancher hailing from Colorado has been dating Chapman for several months now. The two had reportedly met after Chapman had called Frane's husband, Bob, to do some yard work at his home in Colorado. 

Frane had to break the unfortunate news that Bob had passed away several months before Chapman's wife, Beth, died from cancer last June.

The couple had started out by talking on the phone and had become increasingly close. They are helping each other deal with the immense grief of losing their loved ones, his daughter Lyssa said.
