All dogs go to heaven.
Noodle, the geriatric pug who rose to fame on social media for his beloved ‘bone or no bone’ ritual, has died at the age of 14, according to his owner, Jonathan Graziano.
In a tearful update posted to his TikTok and Instagram on Dec. 3, Jonathan shared that the pup died the day before, calling the loss “incredibly difficult.”
“It’s a day that I always knew would come, but never thought would happen,” he said in the video. “Although it’s very sad, I wanted to let you know and I wanted to encourage you to celebrate it as we navigate this sadness.”
Jonathan shared that Noodle, whom he adopted seven years ago, died at home in his owner’s arms. Despite the heartbreak, Jonathan thanked his fans for their love and support, noting that the pug “has made millions of people happy”.
“He lived 14 and a half years, which is about the time you would expect from a dog,” he said. “What a race. Thank you for loving it, thank you for embracing us.”
