Moose was a Jack Russell terrier best known for his role as Eddie on long-running sitcom Frasier, from 1993-2000.
He also appeared in the film My Dog Skip with Frankie Muniz (as Skip), as well as numerous television appearances and several magazine covers on his CV.
He had three children: a daughter, Miko, who was given to a technician on the show; and two sons - Moosie, who was given to Peri Gilpin, and Enzo, who first became his father's stunt double before taking over the role of Eddie when Moose retired.
In 2000 Moose wrote an autobiography (with some tweaking here and there by Brian Hargrove), entitled My Life As A Dog.
In it he expressed dissatisfaction at the fact that he never received a single award on a show which received 37 Emmy Awards and which was regarded as the most successful spin-off series (of Cheers) ever made.
"I don’t care," wrote a clearly hurt Moose. "I’m sick of the whole damn mess. I’m just going to keep doing good work and be satisfied with the knowledge that I’m loved by millions of adoring fans around the world.
"But if I ever have to play a depressed dog again, I won’t have to act."
Moose died on 22 June, 2006, of old age, in his West Los Angeles home.
