I kinda wonder that to sometimes. I think food should never be allowed. There are lots of dogs that can play nicely with toys, but if they can't then they shouldn't be there. In this case the dogs probably wouldn't just swim to swim, the ball drew them out. The labs and my golden were only interested in swimming out to the ball, they got it, brought it back and started all over. They swam back together and did do in perfect harmony, it was nice to see. Then there are the dogs that would kill another dog over a toy, that isn't so nice.
