KATIE Price called boyfriend Carl Woods her “protector” as he posed with guard dog Blade.
The former glamour model, 42, gushed over her boyfriend as he continues to look after her as her feet heal.
The photo shows muscled Carl in a black vest with a matching pair of shorts.
He shows off the tattoos on his arms as he looks down at the black Alsatian.
The protection dog is sitting patiently next to him with a chew toy in his mouth.
Katie captioned the picture: “My two gorgeous protectors blade and @carljwoods ❤️❤️❤️”
The reality star got Blade in May after receiving five kidnap threats – and the dog helps her get to sleep.
Over the weekend Katie opened up to fans about her “tough journey” as she returned to social media today.
The 42-year-old previously took a break from Instagram while she recovered from an operation on her broken feet.
However, she has since returned to social media with a heartfelt message.
Alongside a shot of herself in a wheelchair, Katie wrote: “💗 Happy Saturday 💗 I’m back online and just want to thank everyone for all the love and support!
“It’s a tough journey, but I’m feeling stronger and determined to get through this with all the support of my family, friends, followers and my amazing man @carljwoods.
“Carl and I will be posting a lot more content together on our joint page @adventuresofkatieandcarl and look out for our new YouTube travel channel coming very soon. 💕 📷 @glenngratton.”
Katie revealed she feared she would never walk again following her accident in July.
She was at a theme park with new boyfriend Carl Woods, 31, and her children Junior, 15, and Princess, 13, when the accident happened.
The mother-of-five is now in the The Priory being treated for anxiety and self-esteem issues following her latest setback.
Speaking to The Sun Online, Katie shared: “Everything has hit me so hard, not only am I in a wheelchair but I have to learn to walk again and I’m disabled. It’s humiliating.
“I feel so embarrassed being pushed around. People treat me differently and I don’t know why my boyfriend stays with me. I just hate it because I’m helpless.
“It’s the most difficult thing ever getting in the bath. I have to lift my own body weight and I could drown if something goes wrong.
“Going to the toilet is impossible. I can’t even do proper cooking or get things down from the cupboards.”
She added: “I am being treated in The Priory again because my mental health has been so badly affected.”
Katie broke bones in both of her feet in a horror accident in Turkey over the summer, with the mother-of-five forced to undergo gruelling surgery after doctors warned she wouldn’t be able to walk for at least six months.
She has invested in a pink motorised scooter, and has also been spotted in a pink wheelchair in recent weeks.
The reality star has been left in agony by the recovery period, and even been forced to hit back at cruel trolls who’d accused her of faking the injuries.
