Critiques:

SKC August 2013  Judge Dr.J.Yeoh (Yeosinga)

“My BOB is the captivating r/w bitch Jesse’s Heart Of Gold”

“OB 1 O’Herlihy Jesse’s Heart Of Gold, this quality r/w lady captured my attention the moment she came into the ring & closer examination confirms my first impression, her head & expression, cobby body, typical coat of silky texture topped by excellent temperament & movement totally convinces me of her excellence & I eagerly await news of her further successes. CC & BOB”

South Wales Kennel Association Championship Show 2013.Judge Breed Specialist Mr.M.Rowley:

1.  ”O’Hearlihy’s Jesse’s Heart of Gold. A lovely r/w dainty bitch who really took the eye, smart & square, she has a very pretty head, with dark eyes & well-cushioned muzzle.She had lovely feathering on correct hare feet. She moved and showed with style. RCC”

East Of England Championship Show 2014.Judge Breed Specialist Mr.T.Mather (Barklots)

“OB (6) 1 O’Herlihy’s Jesse’s Heart Of Gold, my second r/w of the day & I thought she was rather special. Elegant & very typical. Beautifully balanced with a good skull, very pretty face with large dark eyes & nicely finished muzzle. Fine strong bone with the most typical Japanese feet. Well bodied for her size & she has a good topline & tailset. Moved soundly & looked most impressive when free standing. Lovely silky coat. CC, her second I understand. Good luck for the third;”

Japanese Chin Club Championship Show UK 2016.Judge Breed Specialist Mr.A.Allcock MBD (Sleepyhollow)

  1. O’Herlihy’s Jess’s Heart Of Gold. To be perfectly honest this was my disappointment of the day. This beautiful sable bitch with her feminine expression produced by her gorgeous eyes and black pigmentation is so appealing. However, she just decided to be uncooperative, despite all the gentle coaching by her most patient owner.  I appreciate that she may have been distracted by something outside the ring but nevertheless she won on sheer breed type and construction despite all.
