probably a silly question

I haven't posted on here for quite some time as I've been lazy with the photos and such. Plus things have been progressing with Porsche quite well. My husband taught her how to shake a paw which he is extremely proud of. ;)

I have a question about Boston pups, though. Porsche is now 5 months old, and she seems to have enough energy for two dogs. She isn't destructive due to pent up energy, she's not destructive much at all. You can literally wake her up in the middle of the night and she will play with you. She loves running, leaping, climbing, playing tug of war, fetching and chasing the cat. And it's not like she'll do this for thirty minutes either; she will want to play at the same steam level for up to two hours. She learns new tricks REALLY quickly because she gives everything 110% of her gusto. My husband and I are wondering if this is normal? Is it normal for a BT to have this much energy every day?

I've never had a BT before, and I was very aware that they had more energy than your average dog, but I don't know if she's really overboard or if it's normal to want to go running all the time.

We are feeding her Eagle Pack (not sure if it's available in the US) which is advertised to help give dogs energy (I honestly gave the TV a withering look when it said this). I don't want to switch her off this food because it keeps her number, and piles of poops small and she is gloriously soft and healthy on it.

Other than that, she's doing very well. Seems pretty smart, she's healthy, and she hasn't destroyed our Christmas tree or any of the presents beneath. She likes cardboard boxes for whatever reason, and I was afraid she'd chew the presents. So far she is very much disinterested in the whole greenery. She is also getting spayed on the eighteenth of this month. Could this possibly calm her down?

Thanks everyone! I will post some Christmas photos of her soon!
