Death can always be difficult to deal with, especially when you’ve lost someone you were incredibly close to. Duane Chapman, better known as Dog the Bounty Hunter, said he was “shocked and saddened” when he learned of the death of his co-star and “right hand man” David Robinson. Despite the heartbreak, the reality star is keen to honor her friend and does so by sharing photos with her fans via social media.
Dog the Bounty Hunter jumped on Instagram in the days following David Robinson’s death and paid tribute to him by sharing some memories of his friend. The dog did not immediately choose to share a photo of most wanted dog or one showing both at work. Instead, he opted for something a little more casual. Looked:
The 69-year-old star didn’t add a caption or context to the photo, so it’s hard to figure out what’s going on in this image or fully grasp its meaning for the reality TV star. The next photo shared by Dog, however, is a little easier to understand, as it’s a photo of David Robinson holding a cake in the middle of what appears to be a birthday party:
The exact cause of David Robinson’s death has not been made public, although TMZ reported that the former most wanted dog star had a medical emergency while on a Zoom call for work. His wife, Brooke Robinson, told the outlet that Robinson was “in very good health” but could not be saved by paramedics who performed lifesaving maneuvers on him when they arrived.
Dog the Bounty Hunter also shared more on social media. Another photo showed her future partner in a slightly more familiar outfit. Check out the photo below, which may have been taken when the two stars were working together on their reality TV show:
David Robinson was featured on most wanted dog during what one imagines to be a difficult time in Duane Chapman’s life. The series was filmed around the time his late wife, Beth Chapman, was battling throat cancer. Beth eventually died of the disease in 2019 and prior to her passing made sure the show documented her experience.
With that in mind, it’s sad that a few years later, Dog the Bounty Hunter is mourning the loss of a good friend. Luckily, he has plenty of great memories to hold on to, like the one reflected in the post below:
Dog the Bounty Hunter considered David Robinson his right-hand man, and it seemed more than obvious based on the moments they shared. They had many memorable feats, and both even had the chance to meet Dr. Oz, likely during one of Dog’s appearances on the TV personality’s medical talk show:
It’s clear that Dog the Bounty Hunter had a great relationship with David Robinson and is still reeling from his untimely passing. His thoughtful photos are sure to be appreciated by his family and loved ones as well as fans who enjoyed watching him and Robinson on the small screen.
Dog the Bounty Hunter does not yet have an upcoming show on the 2023 TV schedule, but given its ability to surface on shows like The Masked Singeryou never know where and when it might appear.
