This breaks my heart. I think the death of any pup is terribly sad, but it's almost like we knew this little guy. He's known as Duke, from the BUSH'S Beans commercials, but his real name is Sam. He had to be euthanized a few days ago due to an aggressive cancer.
BUSH'S Baked Beans posted a statement on their Facebook saying: "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,'' the company wrote. "Because Duke is iconic to BUSH’S and so adored by our fans, we will continue to use him in our ads."
Rest in peace in dog heaven Sam. Thanks for making us laugh.
