These Westies are teaching their pups one of the most important things to know about being a dog. And that is, of course, play time! Watch as these little guys run around with their parents in the video below.



What an absolutely adorable family play time! These little pups are all over the place, exploring, and utilizing their puppy energy. And before you know it, it will be nap time.
