One of the dogs that portrayed "Duke" in commercials for Bush's Baked Beans has died. Sam lived in Apopka, Florida, with his owner, Susan, their neighbor David Odom says. Odom's post about Sam's death went viral on Facebook, and now Bush's Baked Beans is responding.

"We continue to be overwhelmed by fan interest and their love of Duke. The relationship between Jay and his beloved dog Duke is the embodiment of the BUSH'S brand, and has been a part of our family story for more than 20 years," Bush's Baked Beans wrote on Facebook on Tuesday. "During that time, we've worked closely with several dogs who portrayed Duke in our commercials, including Sam."

The company says Sam hasn't played "Duke" in recent years, yet they are "saddened by the news of his passing and are grateful to have had him depict Duke."
