Default Ball problems

Hey guys I have a little problem with my girl Amelia. She will be 6 months old this coming week. She had a bit of an obsession with balls. Everytime we go to the dog park she will go find her a tennis ball and carry it around with her. It normally isn't a problem until this past week. She is now getting possessive and when she lays down with the ball if another dog comes up to her she will growl and sometimes snap at them. Never biting just snapping(she never does this with people just other dogs) whenever we take the ball away her focus is completely on the ball. She will not keep her eyes off it. We don't want to take her balls away because they are her favorite but we need this to stop because it is unacceptable behavior. Any advice you have is greatly appreciated. She is a very well behaved dog and I'm not sure why this started all of a sudden. Thank you in advance for your help.
