Lynn Vogel is at it again.

For the second straight year, Vogel, the owner of South Paws Dog Resort on U.S. Highway 80 East, showed a Hungarian Kuvasz who won Best in Breed at the Westminster Kennel Club Dog Show in New York City.

That means the Kuvasz, whose short name is Adele and whose official name is Grand Champion Aegys Set Fire To The Rain RN, was in the running for Best in Show, the biggest title at the biggest dog show in the nation.

Adele had her moment in the spotlight as part of the Working Group. But the judge did not call Adele among the finalists for best in group. That honor went to GCH Claircreek Impression De Matisse, the Portuguese water dog, the third straight year that breed has won the groiup.

Last year, Vogel brought another Kuvasz, Cole, whose official name is Champion Aegys Unforgettable RN, to Westminster. Cole also won Best in Breed at the 2014 show.
