Bruley, the French Bulldog Who Soared to Fame on Queer Eye, Has Sadly Passed Away at 10 Years Old

Bruley, the adorable French Bulldog that soared to fame after appearing in seasons three and four of Queer Eye, has sadly passed away at 10 years old. His owner Michelle Silva shared the news on Instagram on Oct. 3, saying that her sweet pup passed away in her arms on a rainy day in LA, after he'd been suffering with heart problems.

"My whole heart. My love bug. My best friend. My constant. My soulmate. My everything," Michelle wrote on Instagram. "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. I told him everyday I loved him more than anything in the world, and I reminded him of that over and over as he slipped out of this life. . . He gave me more than I could have ever given him, and I was able to thank him for allowing me to be his mom."

She continued, reminiscing on some of Bruley's personality traits, learned skills, and favorite things. "He was the ultimate copilot in the car when he wasn't dangerously sprawled out across my lap as I drove. He was so very loved by my family and friends and even 'non dog people.' He mastered the 'jump kiss,' and I always had to explain to people that he wouldn't buy you dinner first, he just went in for the full make-out. In the last year of his life, he found fame! Over the course of 16 episodes of @queereye, in just a few moments on screen, you guys all got a glimpse of the Bru I knew and loved. He was hilarious, stubborn, sometimes inappropriate, and always a sucker for a snack. He was pure love. It's been so fun capturing his spirit and sharing more with you all here."

Rather than cease posting photos on Bru's account, Michelle plans on continuing to share the best of him, but also what it was like in the last few months of his life, as so many other dogs are often diagnosed with similar heart failure issues. Queer Eye star Bobby Berk commented on the news, saying: "Breaks my heart. So sorry for your loss love." Our hearts are broken as well, as Bruley was such a fun pup to follow on Instagram and to see in snippets of on Queer Eye. Our hearts go out to Michelle — we're so happy she's going to keep Bru's memory alive through photos. See some of Bruley's cutest photos that she's shared in the past below.
