Bramble, my sweet Australian cattle dog, LOVES to play ball and in the winter time when we have snow she's perfectly happy catching snowballs. It's such fun to throw them for her and watch her catch, chew and spit. Very entertaining. She also loves to walk in the snow, poke her nose down into other animal tracks and roll on her back in it. She will be 10 years old this month and has been such a special joy to me/us.
