Katana is a brown Australian Labradoodle. She was born March 9, 2010 in Coral Springs, Florida. Ashley Christine was there to see her come into this world. Katana became Ashley Christine and Jacky’s forever pet in April 2010. Katana and Ashley Christine became best friends and did everything together. Jacky taught Katana how to sit, stay, shake and even go up the stairs! Katana loved going on long walks and windy car rides. She had a forever lovey called Gary that she slept with every night. At the age of 2, Katana was diagnosed with exocrine pancreatic insufficiency (EPI) and required a special diet and medications to keep her healthy. In 2015, Katana and her family moved to Philadelphia where she got to experience the different seasons for the first time. Katana loved snow days! Katana spent a lot of her time playing with children at the school Ashley Christine worked at. On July 7, 2021 we said goodbye to our best friend. These stories are Katana’s beautiful life written on pages for children to enjoy and learn from.
