I don't have that problem with Jake or Ellie (other than the counter surfing... Ellie tries, but she is still a bit to small!).

Jake will even let me take a T-bone from him. Granted, he is not happy, but doesn't fuss too much.

I am convinced Ellie is ADD. We start playing fetch with a ball, then it moves to every toy in the house.

I think we're fairly lucky in that Bella shares most stuff, she plays with next doors 4 dogs, the shoodles pinch her treats, her toys, she just goes and mugs them off them when she wants them back.

However if it is something she shouldn't have like this morning she'd been upstairs and I always know when she's found something she likes because she sneaks about so quietly to behind the dining table, which is round so she can give me the run around as I try to get the (usually) teddy bear off her, we now have a few dolls who have teeth marks in their foreheads. The chase round the table is usually half hearted because she gives up after 3 laps. I found that by saying to her Aww thank you for helping clear up the bedroom floor and keeping it light hearted helps rather than getting mad. It takes the game away like there's no point in running if I'm going to get the good attention anyway.

I can take things from her mouth and take bones away from her so I should count my blessings.

I've had bassets I could take bones away from, some more easily than others, but with Gandy, it is a struggle. He growls when I try to do that or move him from his favorite couch spot.
