It is the dogs' favorite toy. They demonstrated how to use the Romp-N-Roll during their morning play session.
Noelle started out with the ball, but quickly ran into a much bigger opponent.
Remi tried to take the ball away, but Noelle refused to relenquish possession so easily.
Ziggy decided to get in on the action.
Somehow Ziggy outmanuvered the other two dogs and came away with the ball, with Remi and Noelle in hot pursuit.
On the sidelines, the photographer placed bets (with herself since no one else was around) on who would ultimately gain possession of the ball.
Remi tried barking as a distraction technique, but since his competitors are both deaf, it had no effect.
Resigned to the temporary loss of his favorite toy, Remi gave up and left the playing field.
But with typical terrier determination, Noelle and Ziggy continued to tug.
And tug some more.
Until finally the photographer got tired of waiting for a winner and left the playing field. At which time Ziggy and Noelle both dropped the toy and ran to follow the photographer. It's a good feeling to be more popular than a Romp-N-Roll.
