'Duke,' Bush's Baked Beans dog, goes to heaven

Sam a golden retriever who played the Bush's Baked Beans spokesdog 'Duke,' has passed away

The dog that played Duke in the Bush's Baked Beans commercial has died.

According to CBS News, the neighbor of the woman who owned Sam posted about the dog's death on Facebook, which quickly went viral.

"While Sam has not worked with us in years, we are saddened by the news of his passing and are grateful to have had him depict Duke", wrote the company.

"Sadly [Susan] had to euthanize Sam yesterday due to an aggressive cancer he was suffering from", Odom's post from June 28 reads.

Bush's Baked Beans also paid tribute to the pooch on their Facebook page. His name is actually Sam.

'She is as we are heartbroken.

"He was a very special dog to all who ever knew or had the pleasure of meeting him", the friend wrote.

Claiming that Sam hadn't played Duke in a good number of years, the company was "overwhelmed" by the love and support for the "spokesdog", and that it was this love and support that embodied the "Bush family values".

Duke the dog was known for making snarky comments to his owner in the commercials.

It's unclear, however, if Sam/Duke was able to sell the "secret family recipe" of Bush's Baked Beans. In the ad, Bush whispered in the dog's ear and the famous Bush's Baked Beans commercials became nearly as famous as the products they were selling.
