Duke, the talking dog from the Bush's Baked Beans commercials, has died. Or at least one of the dog actors who played him has.
Duke's real name is Sam, and Sam's owners shared on Facebook that the golden retreiver was put down after battling an "aggressive" form of cancer. The owner called Sam "a very special dog" who "will be missed".
Sam had not appeared in a commercial in several years and Bush's says it will continue to use the "iconic" Duke character in its ads.
