It seems as though Dog had a good holiday weekend. On Sunday, he shared a photo from his fishing trip in Colorado with his daughter and niece.

"Great fishing this weekend in Colorado. photo with Lyssa and my niece Bridgette nice catch Bridgette!!!" he captioned an image.

It's been a big month for Chapman. A few weeks ago he announced he's engaged to his girlfriend Francie Frane.

Frane, 51, talked about how the proposal went down.

"I wasn't expecting it at all," she said. "I think I had gone to pick up some food and then when I came back he had all the lights turned down with just a few lights on and a bunch of candles lit."

"So when I came in I was like, 'Wow, this is awesome'. Then he said, 'Come in, sit down because I need to talk to you,'" she continued. "So I put all the food in the kitchen and I came in and he said, 'I know that God brought you into my life and I don't want to spend one moment of it without you'."

"And he got down on one knee and he opened the ring box and he said, 'Will you marry me and spend the rest of our lives together?' Who can say no to that? It was wonderful," she added.

Shortly after the engagement, Dog revealed the PEOPLE that he thinks his late wife Beth, who died last year, would approve.

"I need a partner," Chapman told PEOPLE. "I've said it before. There will never be another Mrs. Dog. There is not. Francie couldn't do that. There will be a last Mrs. Chapman. If Beth was here, and saw Francie and saw how she was raised, her morality and this and that, Beth would say, 'Big daddy, don't lose her.'"

"You'll never forget the spouse," he added. "You can't help it. I will never forget. But I've got to get out there. I've got to be able to say, 'I came out of this and you can, too.' As a human being, I don't think you look for — not a replacement, because you can never find one. I'm learning that right now."
