You can either see it via findmypast or genesreunited
or the British Newspaper Archive

If you register with the latter, doing which is straightforward enough, you get 15 free credits worth 3 page views, which you can then download.

The same story is also in the Dundee Courier, 17 October, but it is the same word for word I think
Just now run a check, and it is actually on the front page of the Daily Express, 17 October 1911. Right at the very bottom of column 4 (This is from, Daily Express and Daily Mirror archive)
Dog Guards His Master's Body
The body of a man named John Pratley,
aged 60, of Brynmawr was found yes-
terday in Llangattock Quarry. He had
fallen a distance of sixty feet, having
apparently lost his way during a fog on
the mountain which leads to Llangattock.
His dog was found guarding his body.

Also there is Welsh Newspapers Online

From the National Library of Wales. Totally free, but still fairly new and like the BNA they presumably have quite a lot still to add, I didn't see anything there but worth checking and keeping an eye on.
