On December 2, Friday, Graziano posted a video on his Tiktok that the pug passed away at the of 14.
Noodle, the geriatric pug who entertained his Tiktok followers for the past two years, has died. Everyone loved his "no bones" games. In the videos, his owner, Jonathan Graziano, would sit Noodle upright to see if he could stand on his own or if he lay down. If he stood up, it was "bones day," which meant a productive day, and if he laid down- it was a day of self-care and relaxation.
On December 2, Friday, Graziano posted a video on his Tiktok that the pug passed away at the of 14. He said, "I'm so sorry to have to share this but Noodle passed yesterday." He was home and in Graziano's arms when he died. "This is incredibly sad, it’s incredibly difficult.”
Graziano knew that this day would come but couldn't believe that it came. He said, "I wanted to let you know and I wanted to encourage you to celebrate him while we're navigating this sadness he lived 14.5 years which is about as long as you can hope a dog can and he made millions of people happy. What a run."
He also thanked people for "loving and embracing" him. He added, "Give your dog a cheese ball tonight but it has to be the fake stuff." He captioned the video, "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." ❤️
Noodle was adopted by Graziano when he was 7 years old. His video with the dog went viral in 2021 and about 4 million followers used to tune in to see whether Noodle had bones or whether it was a no bones day. Graziano had told CNN, "I had absolutely no idea this would become the barometer in which the nation foretold how their day was going to go."
People were heartbroken and shared their condolences. A user wrote, "Jon, I am sending you so much love, take all the time you need. Noodle will be loved and cherished forever. thank you for sharing him with us 🥺" Another wrote, "I'm so sorry Jon! You gave Noodles the best life! Thank you for sharing your lives with us!! I hope you will not disappear - we all love you too! 💔" "Noodle got all of us through some dark times. He will be so missed! My deepest sympathies for your loss ❤️," another wrote.
In a recent Thanksgiving video, a user had asked to create Noodle-approved gravy. Noodle barks to add gravy to the food. Graziano says in the video, "Oh my God the feedback was heard and Noodle has his own little thing of gravy put on his snacks, and we'll kick it off with little Turkey because you deserve that. Oh my word, injustice addresses. Happy Thanksgiving everyone." Many on the Internet used to love the videos and they appreciated Noodle and Graziano's effort to promote self-care. He explained no-bones day as "Noodle and the No Bones Day" book, Noodle just wanted to take it slow on some days.
