Hi. Edit your post pls

You started out OK with the first property, but then you forgot the comma for the others.

 var myDog = {
   "name": "Weasley",
   "legs": 4,
   "tails": 1,
   "friends": []

im still not sure what the issue is

is this the all code that in the editor?

Cool, you added the missing commas. This code should pass the challenge.

Also, for future issues, to display your code properly in here you need to wrap it in triple back ticks. On a line by itself type three back ticks. Then on the first line below the three back ticks paste in your code. Then below your code on a new line type three more back ticks. The back tick on my keyboard is in the upper left just above the Tab key and below the Esc key.

I can’t really tell what is happening in the initial code but did you declare myDog 3 times? You also have 2 closing brackets } at the end that don’t match with anything.

If you are not passing the tests, please copy and paste all your code again from the editor.

When you enter a code block into a forum post, please precede it with a separate line of three backticks and follow it with a separate line of three backticks to make it easier to read.

You can also use the “preformatted text” tool in the editor (</>) to add backticks around text.

See this post to find the backtick on your keyboard.
Note: Backticks (`) are not single quotes (’).
