As if we needed another reason to love Netflix’s Queer Eye after Season 1, Season 2 gave us (a furry) one. Season 2 of the beloved show introduced us to the Fab Five’s four-legged friend, Bruley the French bulldog. Whether he was sniffing around the Fab Five loft in Kansas City, cuddling with the cast on the couch at the end of each episode, or gladly accepting scraps smuggled to him by Antoni, Bruley captured our hearts from the moment he trotted onscreen.
Sadly, Season 3 marks the last time Bruley will appear on Queer Eye. The French bulldog died of a heart attack at 10-years-old yesterday, October 3rd.
And today, October 4th, the Queer Eye cast is honoring him on social media.
Bruley’s owner Michelle Silva is a Queer Eye producer who worked down the hall from the Fab Five loft. Throughout Seasons 2 and 3, Bruley made adorable cameos with the cast, and basically became an honorary sixth member of the Fab Five. Silva explained how the pup passed away on her Instagram.
Queer Eye home expert Bobby Berk made a tribute to Bruley on Instagram by posting a photo of himself and the pup accompanied by a touching caption.
Bruley’s Instagram account commented on Berk’s post saying, “It’s no secret now. You were my favorite Uncle. Thank you for loving me and my mama.”
Antoni Porowski, the Fab Five’s food & wine expert, shared Silva’s October 3rd Instagram post via his Stories, adding, “Rest in puppy peace, because all dogs go to heaven, little one.”
