Malinois Puppies Try To Chase Mom But Can’t Because They Are Too Smol

Pro Pup Tip: If you’re going to try and run, make sure that you don’t have short, tiny puppy legs. Apparently, they aren’t well suited for the “eager to chase things”-type individuals among us. Who knew?

In this video, taken by their human, these Belgian Malinois puppies and their mom show this tip in action. As she plays with her pups, mom whips them up into a cute cardio frenzy, as she circles them out on the lawn. The puppers are trying their hardest to catch her, and what results is an adorable, albeit delayed, flock of fur following her about.

Just you wait, mom—kids grow up faster than you think!
