"She's thinking very seriously about buying one for Princess for her birthday!"

As ED! reported at the time, she told her followers: "Hey guys, really [bleeped] off this morning. I've just woken up to realise that one of my dogs has been killed on the road.

"I've just checked with the neighbours and everything seems to be how it was when they left the dogs so I don't know how they escaped but yeah, one of my Alsatians has been hit and killed.

"I was away last night with my PA. I left my neighbours to feed the dogs because that's what they do when I'm not there.

"Obviously something has happened in the night."

It followed a 2019 incident that saw police find Katie's German Shepherd pup, Bear, after he escaped her country mansion. They reportedly found him by the busy A24 road in Sussex.
