What's cuter than a puppy? A whole litter of puppies — 16 of them, no less.

If you think a house full of adorable puppies is only the stuff of a dog lover's dreams here's a glimpse into the reality.

Dag Christer Lie, a Norwegian dog breeder, has shared a video on YouTube showing 16 lively Basenji pups, from three different litters, treating his house — and family — like a playground. The Basenji is a breed of hunting dog, originally from central Africa.

Dag and his wife Liv are the owners of Kennel Kingwanas and live in the village of Grua with their two young sons — one of whom stars in the video as the object of the pups' insatiable curiosity.
