Pedigree: see below

Ellen had a genuine british pedigree with successful kennels represented in it, e.g. Wernffrwd, Gwibernant, Jordieland.

Ellen was charactarized by a very strong hunting ability and seemed never loose pace. The tempo and energy were always at top and as the judge Mr Erik Eckhardt de Mant concluded his impression of her performance on the Swedish Cocker Spaniel Club field trial championship  1996;  

"She is an exceptionally eyecatching dog!"

She  started on field trials 18 times, of which she achieved 11 first price. 

(In Sweden the dogs are rewarded with quality-prices; the performances are judged without competition. The dogs can get a 1st price if they are judged to do a very good work, a 2nd price with minor mistake , and a 3rd price if there are some mistakes and of course not of disqualifying nature. If the dogs does disqualifying mistakes they don´t get any price. There are also different classes in which the dogs enter, as they achive their merits from previous class).

and these were rewarded with;  
11  first prices -

"This dog is an exceptionally eyecatching dog. Flashing quester, completely steady, excellent gamefinder and retriever. In one word - a champion!" (my translation)

HP = Honor price

Vagnmakarens Ellen was not a Swedish Field Trial Champion as during the time she entered field trials, it was necessary to have a merit from shows before you could get the title. Since july 2001 this rule is changed but no titels are given retrospectively. Today you get the title field trial champion when the dog has been awarded with 3 first prices from "elit klass" (open stakes). Before july 2001 you needed 3 first prices from "elit klass" and at least a second quality price from an official dog-show. Ellen have 8 first prices from field trials and a third price from a dog-show which was not good enough.
