Labrador retrievers have been the most popular dog breed in America for more than a quarter-century, according to the American Kennel Club (AKC).

And while Labs often receive some of the biggest cheers at Madison Square Garden, where the Westminster Dog Show is held every year in Manhattan, they have never taken home Best in Show — or even best of their group.  

Many have tried to understand why Labradors can’t catch a break. Some believe they aren’t extravagant enough. Others think their lovable personality gets in the way. 

“There are a lot of Labradors that have given me goose bumps, but I think it’s an acquired taste,” Cindy Vogels, a Westminster Best in Show judge, told The Wall Street Journal in 2013.
