Hollywood obituaries are always tough, but this one, in particular, is devastating: Queer Eye's adorable mascot pup, Bruley the French Bulldog, has died.
Bruley first appeared in Queer Eye Season 2, as the Fab Five's new, furry friend. His owner apparently lived down the hall from the Fab Five's loft in Kansas City, and Bruley's natural star quality landed him a spot on the series as the Fab Five's honorary mascot. Sadly, the team-up was not meant to last, since Bruley's owner, Michelle Silva, posted on Instagram Thursday that the 10-year-old dog passed away due to a sudden heart attack.
"I brought him home when he was 9 weeks old on a rainy day in New York City. Ten years later on a rainy day in LA, he passed away in my arms on my bedroom floor," Silva wrote. "Bru had been suffering from heart problems, and an instant heart attack was a possibility. He just had too much love and heart for his physical body. It all happened so fast, but I held him as he took his last breath, and I was able to tell him I loved him the very most.
Bobby Berk shared his own messages of mourning for Bruley on Instagram soon after.
"RIP my furry little friend," Berk wrote. "You brought joy to so many with your jump kisses, grunts and even your farts. You were the best little sidekick we could have had. You will be very missed by all including your mama @tinsely_who my heart goes out to right now. I love YOU #bruleybru #queereye."
Queer Eye is currently streaming on Netflix.
