The internet can’t stop watching the sleepy antics of Noodle, the 13-year-old pug who has become a bit of a celebrity thanks to his owner, Jonathan Graziano.
Social media marketer Johnathan, who lives in New York City, would post about his little pup on Instagram, as he discovered that Noodle was very attached to his dog bed.
Sometimes, when Jonathan tried to haul Noodle out of bed, he’d stand on his four little paws and sit up straight. Other times, Noodle will refuse to stand up – and bellyflop back into the safety of his cushion.
Having first adopted little Noodle when he was seven years old, Jonathan explained to AMNY: “I was preparing to have a dog when I adopted him, I figured I had to wake up early to walk him. I would walk him at 8pm and then at 11am the next day he would still be asleep. I would go and nudge him a bit and he would just flop.
“Noodle just likes to be comfortable and he’s very stubborn.”
Noodle’s stubbornness led to Jonathan starting to play the game ‘No Bones’ with his dog, and posting the videos on TikTok.
The premise is fairly straightforward: Noodle tells us if it’s a bones day or a no bones day when Johnathan lifts this puggy pal from his bed and lets go. If Noodle stands, we have a bones day — if Noodle flops back down into his bed, it’s a no bones day.
So, what does this mean? Well, if it’s a bones day, it means you should take the day by the horns, and do something active and pleasant that you may not do usually. Out shopping and you see that shimmery eyeshadow palette you’ve been hankering after? Buy it! It’s a bones day after all.
Bones days are also good days to meet your friends for brunch, calling someone up and telling them you love them, or going for a long, pleasant cycle down by a river.
But when Noodle tells us it’s a no bones day, that doesn’t necessarily mean it’s a bad day.
In fact, a no bones day means to practise self-care – take a bubble-bath, put on a facemask and cancel all your plans to snuggle up and watch Netflix without any guilt or FOMO whatsoever.
“I think bones days are the day to go after what you want and for no bones days, you focus on self care,” said Jonathan. “You can take a bubble bath on a bones day or a no bones day, the mentality just changes.
“On a bones day you do it because you deserve it, on a no bones day you do it to take a second and make yourself feel better. We have to reclaim the narrative of a no bones day because they aren’t bad days.”
