Dog fighting/Biting

I haven't posted in a while; my summer has been very busy. I am going to post pictures of Daisy soon - she is getting SO big and she is getting to be quite brindle, she has little brown "pants" on her legs which are cute.

I know I had posted before about the play fighting. It still worries me. Gambit's neck and throat area as well as his lower lip are just covered in cuts and scabs from Daisy's little puppy teeth. I don't know what to do. They love chasing each other around the house but every 5-10 minutes erupts in snarls and bites and jumping on each other, usually because they can't share toys and only want what the other one is playing with. I seperate them or holler or give them a quick spritz of water and they seem fine - Gambit will then chase her around and they will "playfight" again. They don't seem to be trying to hurt each other but they play so rough! Daisy doesn't have a scratch on her, Gambit never actually bites her, but Daisy has just bitten the heck out of Gambit. I try to tell her no and sequester her away but this happens EVERY time they are together. Gambit doesn't yelp or cry, but I do worry that his neck is getting so cut and sore. It also looks like she's biting his feet as his toes are all red and sore.

Will she outgrow this? Gambit and his boxer friend bite and snap at each other all the time but they never actually close their teeth on each other's throats or anything like that. In the meantime, what do you reccomend to treat his poor little neck and mouth area? He looks like a toddler that fell in a gravel pit half the time...

    In case anyone still checks this community, I thought I'd post this. My Lainie died yesterday. She had turned 11 years old not long ago. I took her…
