KATIE Price’s daughter Princess has taken to social media to express her heartbreak over the death of her puppy yesterday.
The 13-year-old was given beloved pooch Rolo for her birthday last month.
Posting a pic of her and the pup on Instagram she wrote: “Rip baby boy I love you so much u meant everything to me miss you already.”
The snap showed the pair curled up on a sofa looking cosy and cute.
Katie, 42, bought her daughter the adorable dog for her 13th birthday last month and is said to be devastated.
A source told The Sun Online the pet was discovered at their Surrey home after a shockingly sad accident.
They explained: “Rolo was found dead by Harvey’s carer and they had to phone Katie to break the news.
“Katie is devastated and heartbroken and had to call Princess and break the news. Everyone’s in floods of tears.
“It was a tragic accident nobody could have foreseen – it’s no one’s fault, but Katie can’t stop crying.”
The accident happened five months after another of the family’s dogs, Alsatian Sparkle, was killed running into a busy road.
Mum-of-five Katie also has an Alsatian called Blade, who works as a protection dog and sleeps in the star’s room.
Another dog, Queenie, died in tragic circumstances in 2018, when she was struck by a delivery diver.
Princess, who is Katie’s daughter with singer and TV star Peter Andre, had said she wanted to give her puppy the “best life”.
She was seen stocking up on everything from blankets to special doggy perfume at a shop in a recent YouTube video.
Princess even taught him to do tricks including holding out his paw and was seen giving him a bath in a cute video last Wednesday.
The teenager named Rolo after the chocolates, having decided not to go with her other choice, Oreo.
She showed him off to fans on YouTube, when the youngster lovingly bathed the puppy and showered him with kisses.
She also revealed some of the tricks he had learnt, with the dog holding out his paw.
Princess has long wanted a dog but, as Peter explained in his New magazine column, he couldn’t because of his doctor wife’s allergies.
He wrote in his New magazine column: “It’s every dad’s dream to get their daughter a puppy for their 13th birthday but Emily is so allergic to dogs I don’t think it’s going to be possible.”
Instead, the 47-year-old and Emily got her two dwarf rabbits and Katie gave her the dog.
Katie has five children, of whom Princess is the third eldest. She also has 15-year-old Junior with Pete and Harvey, 18, her child with Dwight Yorke.
She shares son Jett, six, and daughter Bunny, five, with estranged husband Kieran Hayler.
