TikTok's Noodle the Pug has died aged 14

Dad Screams With Excitement When He's Gifted New Pug

TikTok sensation Noodle, the Pug who became famous for his "bones or no bones" predictions has sadly passed away.

The 14-year-old dog and owner Jonathan Graziano (@jongraz) amassed 4.5m followers on the platform after playing the "no bones" game each morning where Noodle would either stand up or plop back over onto his dog bed.

It would be declared a "no bones" day if Noodle flopped back to his bed, where Graziano explained it those days were for self-care and looking after yourself.

While a "bones day" meant that it would be a positive day where people can achieve their goals and objectives.

In a recent TikTok, Graziano broke the sad news about Noodle's passing to the doggo's followers.

"I'm so sorry to have to tell you this, but Noodle passed yesterday," an emotional Graziano said.

"He was at home. He was in my arms and this is incredibly sad, it's incredibly difficult. It’s a day I always knew was coming, but never thought would arrive."

“He lived 14 and a half years, which is about as long as you can hope a dog can,” he added.

“I wanted to encourage you to celebrate him while we're navigating this sadness. He made millions of people happy - what a run! Thank you for loving him."

"It has been the privilege of my life to care for Noodle these past 7 years. The sweetest man there has ever been and will ever be," he wrote in the caption.
