Nooo, queen! Het makeover-programma Queer Eye is één van zijn sterren verloren. De Fab Five zijn gelukkig in orde, maar dat geldt niet voor hun Franse bulldog Bruley…

Slecht nieuws uit Queer Eye-land (niet te verwarren met The I-Land). De populaire viervoeter Bruley is niet meer…

My whole heart. My love bug. My best friend. My constant. My soul mate. My everything. 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. 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. My best friend and boyfriend held us both. 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. He chose me. We got to experience so much together; he loved traveling on planes and looking out the window! 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. I’ve taken a few days to process and grieve and figure out what’s next. I’ve realized, I don’t want to stop sharing the best of Bru. I also want to show you a little of what it was like the last few months dealing with an ailing dog in heart failure as more and more dogs are being diagnosed with the same issues. I was so close to completing Bru’s website with long-awaited merch. I’ll get there in time. I’ve also been exploring non-profit opportunities and getting involved in bulldog rescue. There is so much Bru inspired, and it’s so much bigger than I even realized. (Cont. below)

Een bericht gedeeld door Bruley (@bruley) op


De Franse bulldog had al een tijdje hartproblemen en overleed deze week door een acute hartaanval. Franse bulldogs zijn erg schattig en populair, maar de rashonden staan helaas ook bekend om hun gezondheidsproblemen.

De medewerkers van Queer Eye reageerden verslagen op het verscheiden van hun vrolijke vriend.


Queer Eye

Bruley, het hondje van een producer van de show, kwam in het derde en vierde seizoen van de serie regelmatig even langs. Het duurde niet lang voor de bulldog een publiekslievelingetje werd. Op Instagram had Bruley ruim 200.000 volgers die zijn avonturen nauwgezet in de gaten hielden.

Queer Eye werd onlangs verlengd met een vijfde seizoen. Jonathan, Tan, Karamo, Bobby en Antoni zetten hun ‘fabulousness’ binnenkort weer in om mensen die aan lager wal zijn geraakt te redden. Dat format klinkt versleten, maar is verrassend leuk én populair!
