    Default Moose Halberg age 16 passed away.. aka Eddie

    Frasier's dog Eddie dies aged 16

    Moose played Frasier Crane's father's dog for 10 years

    Moose the dog, better known as Eddie in US sitcom Frasier, has died aged 16 in Los Angeles, his trainer has said.
    The Jack Russell terrier passed away of old age last week at trainer Mathilde Halberg's home, she told People magazine and the Access Hollywood show.
    "He just had an incredible charisma and was a such a free spirit," Ms Halberg said of Moose, who appeared in 192 Frasier episodes from 1993.
    Moose shared the part of Eddie with his son, Enzo.
    He made his first appearance on the long-running Cheers spin-off in the first episode on 16 September 1993, retiring 10 years later in 2003. The show finished in 2004.
    'Consummate professional'
    His fictional owner, retired policeman Marty Crane (John Mahoney), announced the dog's full name was Eddie Spaghetti: "Because he has worms."
    Moose's ability to stare at lead actor Kelsey Grammer for extended periods became a running joke on the programme.
    Moose was renowned for being able to stare at Kelsey Grammer

    When he had to lick his co-stars, however, liver pate was dabbed behind their ears to achieve the required response, Mahoney once revealed.
    During the height of Frasier's popularity, Moose received more fan mail than any of his human counterparts.
    "He's like a robot," Mahoney told Animal Press magazine in 1994. "A consummate professional who works hard learning his tricks."
    Moose also played the title role in 2000 film My Dog Skip. According to Ms Halberg, Moose was 16-and-a-half when he died on Thursday. Other sources, however, quote his birthdate as 24 December 1990, which would make him 15 at the time of his demise.

    ------------
    Moose looks like our short coat Jack Russell named Maggie, she's going on 12.

    Nice long life in dog terms.. RIP Moose!

    Yeah - that's a pretty good age for a dog. I'm sure he had a happy life.

    He was a cutie and no doubt dearly loved. RIP, Moose.

    I loved My Dog SKip and didn't find it sad.

    Sorry to hear about Moose.

    Aw, Moose was awesome. I think later in the show, his son played the role a few times.

    Frasier: Dad? I thought we had an agreement. Eddie doesn't roll around on my sofa and I don't throw him in front of a bus.

    Frasier: [To Martin] Would you get Eddie off of the couch - or else it's out to the garbage chute for the thrill ride of his life!
