'FRASIER' DOG EDDIE, 16

Or 112 in dog years, if you use the old 7-years-to-1 coversion (the newfangled Online Conversion calculator says it's closer to being a 77-year-old human).

Anyway, that dog from "Frasier" has left the building. The Associated Press reports:
The 16-year-old Jack Russell terrier, whose real name was Moose, passed away of old age Thursday at the Los Angeles home of trainer Mathilde Halberg, Halberg told People magazine.

The canine character Eddie drove Kelsey Grammer’s lead character crazy for 10 years on the show.

It wasn’t all acting on Moose’s part, though. He was naturally "extremely mischievous," Halberg said.

His contribution to the show’s and Grammer’s success was publicly noted by the actor when he accepted a 1994 Emmy for best actor in a comedy.

"Most important, Moose, this is for you," Grammer added good naturedly.

Moose, who also played the older dog Skip in the 2000 film "My Dog Skip," was retired in recent years.
