Moose was the youngest of a litter of four, yet was also the biggest, hence
his name. Hyper and destructive as a pup, he eventually found his way to
Birds & Animals Unlimited, where he got his job playing Eddie on 'Frasier',
before going on to act in the film My Dog Skip (2000), along with his son,
and he has appeared in print ads, on the covers of Life and TV Guide, and
with Jay Leno and David Letterman.
Moose's son, Enzo, is also in show-business. They shared the part of Skip in
the movie My Dog Skip (2000).
Moose / Eddie received more fan mail than any of the other 'Frasier' cast
He was 15-and-a-half years old when he died.
Species: Parson Russell Terrier.
