NEW YORK -- A standard schnauzer from Livermore won the top prize for its breed at the 138th Westminster Kennel Club Show in New York on Tuesday but failed to advance to the Best in Show category.

Ogee Saltus Ze Zahrabske, "Ogee" for short, made it to the finals in the Working Group competition but ultimately lost out to a Portuguese water dog, Claircreek Impression De Matisse.

Ogee, a male dog, is owned by Carol Davis-Earle, Cornelia Cheng and Ellen and Brad Yamada.

A 5-year-old wire fox terrier named Sky was named Best in Show, marking the 14th time in the show's history that breed has claimed the top prize. No other breed has won more than eight times.

There were 2,845 dogs entered in the competition. They were eligible in 190 breeds and varieties. The judging was televised live on USA cable network.
