Can someone tell me why this code doesn't pass, it's correct based off my notes?

script.js
const addy = {
  animal: 'dog', 
  age: 3,
  breed: 'pug'
};
const message = `Hi my pug is ${addy.age + 1}.`

This will create a message string indicating a higher age, but the instructions ask you to change the property itself (and no string is needed). You want something more like this:

addy.age += 1;
