The great retriever Duke and the mascot of Bush’s roasted beans – he passed away after fighting diseases. This news came from a family companion who claimed Sam, the puppy who assumed the fun part of Duke in the ads. The family companion had this to state:

Most know him as “Duke” the Bush’s Baked Beans dog. His name is actually Sam. He lived in Apopka with our friend Susan his owner. She trains animals to work in commercials. Not just hers, but others. Unfortunately, she had to euthanize Sam yesterday because of the aggressive cancer he was suffering from. She is as we are heartbroken. Here is a photo from his better days.
