During the season finale of Dog’s Most Wanted on WGN America, fans got a deep, inside look at exactly what Beth and the whole family went through during her last days on Earth.
The chilling preview to the episode is enough to give viewers a taste of what happened in her final moments and reveals the difficult and heart-wrenching things Beth and her family endured.
In another part of the episode, Duane “Dog” Chapman and his family are inside the hospital and struggling when facing the choice of having to take Beth off life support or not.
Beth’s final days were marked with extreme difficulty breathing and was rushed to the emergency room before doctors placed her in a medically-induced coma.
“Her heart is bad, she has sepsis,” Dog said to the family. “The kidneys are affected, the liver’s got cancer all through it, she’s got pneumonia, and she’s got the infection. And now it’s like, do we pull the plug?”
Anguish doesn’t even begin to describe the decision they were faced with – and ended up making. She passed away on June 29th, 2019.
Trying to return to their lives was even more difficult than any of them could have imagined – and Dog struggled deeply.
“I just hope that I don’t live very much longer without her, because now she made the first step, she’s through the gate. I want to take a God d*** pain pill so bad. I feel like if I did something to myself right now and passed away suicidal and I got to heaven and was like, ‘Hi honey,’ and would she go, ‘You d— a–, why would you do that?’ Or would she go, ‘Wow, you’re here.’ I’ll be like ‘Of course I’m here. You left me. I’m here.’ So, am I obligated to do that?” Dog said during the finale.
The pain of losing his soul mate was nearly insurmountable for Dog and in just the short time since her passing – he has endured many more trials and struggles both related and unrelated to her death.
Recently, he suffered some serious heart problems which he attributed to having a “broken heart” before being diagnosed with a pulmonary embolism. After faced with his own mortality, Dog explained “I don’t want to die right now.”
