Failing to conform to Pet Protocol

I believe my Dog Struct is properly conforming to the Pet Protocol

protocol Animal {
  var numberOfLegs: Int { get }
protocol Pet : Animal {
  var cuddlyName: String { get }
struct Dog : Pet {
  var cuddlyName: String 
  var numberOfLegs: Int

Hi there, again! Yes, it conforms just fine and produces no error in Xcode. That being said it's still being really picky about the placement of the colon (once again).

//You wrote
struct Dog : Pet

//They want
struct Dog: Pet 

Hope this helps! :sparkles:
