TikTok star Noodle, a pug known for sleeping and forecasting the day’s vibe, died Friday at the age of 14. New York City-based Jonathan Graziano took to TikTok to announce the news to his 4.4 million followers the following day.
“This is incredibly sad. It’s incredibly difficult,” Graziano said teary-eyed. “It’s a day that I always knew was coming but never thought would arrive.”
Noodle won over the internet with nearly daily videos of a game called “no bones.” Graziano would hoist Noodle out of his bed and if the pug flopped back down, it was a “no-bones” day, warning people to take it easy and avoid risks. If he remained standing, it was a “bones” day, encouraging people to take risks and indulge.
