A senior pug with “no bones” has stolen the hearts of TikTok.
Noodle is a 13-year-old pug with 583,000 followers. The elder dog is in the second season of his life so he’s pretty much over his spry and energetic puppy phase. Noodle basically spends most of his time melting into his dog bed for some deep relaxation. Every day his owner Jonathan checks to see if the pug is having a “bones” or “no bones” day.
“Welcome back to yet another round of ‘no bones’ the game where we find out if my 13-year-old pug woke up with bones,” Jonathan explained in a video. “And as a result, we’re going to find out what kind of day we’re going to have.”
Noodle was laying down with his tongue hanging out on his dog bed. Jonathan lifted the pug up to see if he would stand and the canine plopped right back into bed. It looked like his little legs weren’t feeling up to the task for the day. But all was well according to the pet owner.
“It’s a ‘no bones’ day,” Jonathan said. “I don’t think that’s a bad thing. I think that just means you have permission to flop on plans or activities if you don’t want to do them.”
Jonathan frequently plays the “no bones” game on his channel and it’s become something his followers look forward to.
On October 1, Noodle did have bones and it was certainly a cause to celebrate.
“Oh my gosh! Oh my gosh! There are bones! There are bones today! You know what that means treat yourself today!” Jonathan said excitedly.
“Wow! He has bones just frequently enough for me to be in utter shock every time,” a user said.
“I have never seen Noodle with bones. I feel alive,” another person said.
“Buy a lottery ticket, Noodle’s bones said so,” a person wrote.
