Sad news, Brooklyn Nine-Nine Fanatics!

Stewart, the beloved dog who played Cheddar on the NBC hit, has died aged 13. 

The corgi's owner announced the sad news on Instagram but confirmed Stewart got one last trip to the beach before being put to sleep. 

“We went to the beach (his favorite place) where he frolicked in the surf and then enjoyed a picnic lunch of In & Out burgers," the post reads. 

"We relaxed in the sun and just enjoyed each other’s company."

What's more, he was the ring bearer at Jake and Amy's wedding. 

The role of Cheddar has been played by several corgis throughout the show's six-season run, but Stewart had the longest tenure in the role.

Brooklyn Nine-Nine Quotes

Holt: I know you'd all rather be at home binge-watching media content...
