TIKTOK is home to quick videos portraying everything from funny moments to recipes.
A TikTok video of a floppy, now-deceased pug brought a new trend with it – bones or no bones day.
What is bones day on TikTok?
Bones day became a popular trend on TikTok in October 2021.
TikToker Jonathan Graziano became famous for posting videos of his floppy pug, Noodle, in bed in the morning.
Noodle was held up by Graziano over his dog bed in a standing position. Graziano then removed his hands.
The videos were reminiscent of groundhog day: if Noodle stands up on his own, it’s a “bones day”. If Noodle flops back down, it’s a “no-bones day”.
What does bones day or no-bones day mean?
Since the videos of Noodle and Graziano became popular, it became a trend on TikTok to either have a “bones day” of “no-bones day”.
When Noodle floped down, and it was a no-bones day, TikTokers associated that with going back to bed and cancelling their plans.
On days when Noodle remained standing – a bones day – that meant it was time to seize the day, gaan uit, and make plans.
Many users made parody videos or memes about Noodle, and the hashtag #nobones had over 25million views on TikTok.

The videos included scenarios like showing up late to work – a no-bones day. One user commented about getting a job offer on a bones day.
Graziano noted that no-bones days are not a bad thing, but an excuse to relax.
Who was Noodle the pug?
Noodle the pug was adopted by Graziano in 2016.
Graziano adopted him when he was seven-and-a-half-years-old, from an owner who was no longer capable of taking care of Noodle.
The pug had an Instagram, @showmenoodz, which had over 47K followers.
Egter, Noodle passed away on December 2, 2022, op die ouderdom van 14.
Graziano paid tribute to his beloved pet on December 3, 2022, in a video sê: “I’m so sorry to have to share this, but Noddle passed yesterday. He was at home. He was in my arms, and this is incredibly sad.”
“It’s incredibly difficult.”
“It’s a day that I always knew was coming but never thought would arrive, and although this is very sad, I wanted to let you know and I wanted to encourage you to celebrate him while we’re navigating this sadness.”
Graziano added: “He lived 14 and a half years which is about as long as you can hope a dog can, and he made millions of people happy.”
“What a run. Thank you for loving him. Thank you for embracing us and giving your dog a cheese ball tonight but it has to be the fake stuff.”
