DOG The Bounty Hunter's daughter Lyssa has paid tribute to her late stepmom Beth on Mother's Day, recalling Beth's smile and "crazy obsession" with April the giraffe.
Sharing a picture of Beth with a big smile on her face and holding up a tee with April the giraffe on it, Lyssa wrote: "Miss you, your smile and your crazy ass obsession with this giraffe.
"Happy Mother’s Day in Heaven."
April the giraffe became a viral sensation in 2017 when New York's Animal Adventure Park decided to livestream the late stages of her pregnancy and her labor.
Beth was an American bounty hunter and reality star who shot to fame in 2004 when she appeared alongside her husband Duane "Dog" Chapman, on his show Dog the Bounty Hunter.
The pair had two biological children together, Bonnie Joanne Chapman (1998) and Garry Chapman (2001), but the pair were happy to raise Dog's previous seven children – including Lyssa – in their blended family home.
Beth was diagnosed with stage two throat cancer in early 2017, and her death on June 26 2019 was confirmed by her husband Duane who then announced her passing on Twitter.
He wrote on June 26, 2019: "It’s 5:32 in Hawaii, this is the time she would wake up to go hike Koko Head mountain.
"Only today, she hiked the stairway to heaven. We all love you, Beth. See you on the other side."
Bonnie also shared a heartbreaking Mother's Day tribute to Beth, writing on Instagram that she "hoped heaven is treating you well".
This was Bonnie's first Mother's Day without her mom.
Along with a picture of her dad and mom, she wrote: "I miss you, Happy Mother’s Day mama.
"Hope heaven is treating you well."
Dog, who was married for 13 years to Beth, also remembered her on the special day, sharing a picture of her taken on Mother’s Day 2019 – just one month before she passed away from throat cancer.
In the throwback, a smiling Beth soaked in a jacuzzi that was on a boat in the middle of the ocean.
The bail bonds woman wore a bikini along with a colorful flower crown.
“Last Mother’s Day!! Love you miss you Beth,” the grieving widower – who recently became engaged to new girlfriend Francie Frane – wrote of his beloved wife.
