In the week before Christmas, on a cosy bed beside a log burner a dog snoozes happily, her belly full of lobster. Just a few months earlier she had lain in the cold and filth of a Welsh puppy farm, her belly empty of food but full of yet another litter of puppies. The contrast could not have been greater.
