Nothing happens

My code looks identical to what's on the screen but it's not doing anything. When I type "node Pet.js into the console it just gives me another line in the console, no output. Here's my code:

class Pet { constructor(animal, age, breed) { this.animal = animal; this.age = age; this.breed = breed; } }

const ernie = new Pet('dog', 1, 'pug');

const vera = new Pet('dog', 8, 'border collie');

I was having this same problem because I wasn't paying attention when she added the console.log(ernie) portion and the view later is scrolled up. :)

Make sure to save the Pet.js document (command S or control S). It might just be you haven't saved the recent changes you just added then nothing happens because nothing has been saved yet.

I would recommend installing node.js and using Visual Studio code since you would have to use it in the future anyways.

I copied your code and pasted it into the workspace, it looks like it is working fine: link to image
