Dog The Bounty Hunter is enjoying his new relaxing life in Colorado, and by the smile on his face, he is also enjoying life with his new girlfriend.
Duane Chapman shared a video on his Instagram page of himself on a fishing trip, where it appears his girlfriend Francie Frane is shooting while he is enjoying the outdoors.
In the clip, Dog is casting out a line on the shore of a big lake and is smiling during the outing from ear to ear. Of course, he is sporting his legendary long blonde hair and sleeveless shirt.
At one point, Dog makes his way to a trap which seems to have been set by his GF — and it is filled with two whoppers!!
“Dog the fish hunter,” one jokester said after watching it.
Fans are pumped to see Dog smiling and enjoying life again after such a tragic few years. Also, several people pointed out he is wearing a nicotine patch and seems to have quit smoking!
“So happy u are relaxing! I see u have a smoking patch on! I quit for 10 months using them but sadly I went back to smoking. Love ya Dog!!” one fan wrote.
“Love you dog, so happy you’ve got a good woman.?” another person commented.
The best part is that several people are pointing out how Dog isn’t much of a fisherman and her trap seems to be doing the trick. “Oooooooh Duane, she out fished you bro! Read’em & weep! LOL. Have fun! I LOVE to fish!” a fan wrote.
Another added, “Nice fish Francie!! — Smart man, that’s what we’re doing tomorrow! We’ve been seeing people on the lake so I thought why not! We need to get out!”
As we reported, Dog is newly dating a woman he met in Colorado named Francie Frane. Dog and his new GF went Instagram public in the last few days, posting a photo of them posing together.
The couple met after both lost their respective spouses to cancer, after leaning on each other for support, started a romantic relationship.
The best part is both of Dog’s daughters approve of the new relationship, even after Baby Lyssa was very upset her father was allegedly dating longtime assistant, Moon Angel.
The relationship is getting serious very quickly after Francie dropped the “L” word on social media.
“Thank You All So Much for all the encouraging comments, Dog & I appreciate it so much. We know God brought us together and have no doubts about that AT ALL !!” she wrote on Instagram.
She continued, “And as wonderful, loving and kind as you all think Dog is HE IS & MORE!! I LOVE YOU DUANE LEE.”
Many of Dog’s fans were appreciative of the fact that Frane addressed the fact that neither of them could “replace” their late spouses.
