Duke, The Golden Retriever That Became the Face of Bush’s Baked Beans Commercials Has Died


An Apopka golden retriever that became the face of Bush’s Baked Beans commercials died last week, the company confirmed Tuesday.

His real name was Sam, and he was one of several dogs that portrayed the loyal companion in more than 20 years of Bush’s commercials.

“The relationship between Jay and his beloved dog Duke is the embodiment of the BUSH’S brand,” the company wrote in a Facebook post. “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.”

“We continue to be overwhelmed by fan interest and their love of Duke,” the post said.

Meanwhile, a friend of the dog’s owner posted on Facebook that Sam had been battling an aggressive cancer and he had to be euthanized on Wednesday.

“He was a very special dog to all who ever knew or had the pleasure of meeting him,” David Odom wrote. “He is and will be missed.”
