The dog who played Cheddar on Brooklyn Nine-Nine has died


Stewart, the adorable corgi who played Captain Raymond Holt’s dog Cheddar on Brooklyn Nine-Nine, has died. He was 13.

Stewart's owner took to Instagram to announce the sad news, saying the dog had "peacefully" passed away. But not before he had an amazing day. He is survived by his sister Stella.

“We went to the beach (his favorite place) where he frolicked in the surf and then enjoyed a picnic lunch of In & Out burgers. We relaxed in the sun and just enjoyed each other’s company,” his owner wrote. “Our veterinarian met us there later and Stewart went to sleep peacefully in my arms while listening to the sounds of the ocean. He was a one in a million kind of dog, he was my supaah staah.”

Cheddar played Captain Holt's sidekick in the popular TV show. The corgi, who Holt (Andre Braugher) will note is “no common b—-,” has come to the Nine-Nine’s rescue on numerous occasions (sometimes more successfully than others).

Cheddar has been played by a few different dogs since his first appearance on the show in season 1, but Stewart had embodied the role the longest.
