Puppies can sleep from 15 to 20 a hours a day (depending on age) it helps their growth, a pup in a household with kids and other pets tends to be more active.
However if the pup shows signs of Vomitting, Diarrhea or not wanting to eat, dont hesitate get it seen by the Vets, an 8 week old pup is vulnerable and can go down very fast.
If it is not displaying any signs, I wouldn't worry too much, pups are like babies who tend to sleep a lot, the older they get the more active they get.
Get your pup into a routine of going to bed early and rising early (with you) which will help you down the line.

I have a 12 week old puppy we've had her from 5 and a half weeks old! They do sleep alot ...skye slept most of the day up until about 10 weeks old when she started getting more active so now at 12 weeks old she is very active running around our house all day and taking every oportunity to run in the garden and try sneak up the stairs! Although when it gets to around 8pm she just wants to lie and sleep and that's her for rest of night!
Enjoy the nice peaceful sleeping stage while it lasts :-)
