Play is a good thing. The more happy play the better, as far as I'm concerned!
I remember when I was 11 and adopted my Lab mix puppy (who has since passed). Her mother was a border collie and she was from a litter of TEN. When I came in, she was the only one that was awake, and I decided I wanted a playful dog so I chose her.
I don't regret that choice for a second. She was quite the character but overall was an amazing dog. Loving, playful, kind. Perfection.
Very very normal. I have a 9 month old pup now and it's abnormal if he isn't playing and being active. When he isn't that's my cue to see if he feels "off". I love the puppy stage..one of my favorites.
If playful puppy is your only concern as pet parent so far, then you surely are the luckiest one I know!:thumbsup:

Your video made me laugh and bring memories of my mini pincher, who was like that- super hype!
