Having trouble with Protocol Composition

I'm having some trouble with the composition of the protocol. Am I supposed to make cuddlyName a method? Please help me out. Thanks in advance.

protocols.swift
protocol Animal {
  var numberOfLegs: Int { get }
}

protocol Pet: Animal
{

 var cuddlyName: String { get } 
}

struct Dog: Pet
{
  var name: String

  func cuddlyName() -> String
  {
   return "Name: \(name)" 
  }
}

In this challenge you can leave the body blank but Dog needs to conform to Pet and Animal.
