Available Shikoku Male

EDIT: Thanks for all the mails. This guy has found a home.
#########################################

I think I posted one pic of this guy a while back.
He was born on December 27th, and is out of Bunta x Kaori (Kaori is a Kuromasa x Chacha pup). He's a friendly pup, with a very nice temperament. If anyone's interested, mail me at kato.the.walrus@gmail.com




Here's pics from when the litter was younger.

Another Shikoku Database

So we already have a beautiful user generated pedigree database for the Shikoku Ken over at www.shikoku-pedigree.com that was put together by Nico over at Kasatori Sou in the Netherlands. I have however wanted a database to track COI, AVK, health issues, that sort of thing. The current Shikoku Pedigree site is great for a quick look up of a dog, get some good info and pictures, or putting pedigree information up quickly. It's user friendly.

What I've been working on for a while is a separate database that simply put will be less user friendly. And less friendly to me as well. I'm going through my excel database in Japanese with 96,000 entries, weeding out the dogs with not enough information, or double entries etc and am going to try to make it useful to track the past and current Shikoku gene pool.


https://shikokuken.pedigreedatabaseonline.com/en/ is where the data will be. I've currently put a bit of test data in there to see how it all comes up and calculates, how it handles Japanese kanji and searches, and so far all is good. I like the functionality of seeing the COI/AVK calculations, and being able to search for common ancestors in the pedigrees of multiple dogs (say you're looking for some connection concerning a genetic health issue).



Anyway, not sure how soon it will be before I get all the data up, but I reckon if I blog about it it will happen sooner!
