Winners at the 2014 Mastiff Club of America National
Specialty. As an adult, he placed Working Group Third at
the Westminster Kennel Club in 2020 - one of only six
Mastiffs in history to place at the Garden.
The economies of simultaneously showing giant and
toy breeds can be seen when Chris hustles around leading
her current Mastiff special, " Traveler " (GCH Millennium's
Traveling Man), to her setup with Marley tucked under
her arm. She says, " Everyone stops and asks, 'How much
does he weigh?' Then, they see Marley and ask, 'And, how
much does he weigh?' "
Opposites, indeed, in terms of how much they weigh
and the groups in which they compete but not in terms of
the love Chris and Tim share for their Wingssong Papillons
and Millennium Mastiffs.
DEVLYNN'S WHIPPETS & NEXT GENERATION'S CHESSIES
The dog fancy world of professional handler Devon
Kipp and the hunting retriever world of trainer Adam
Levy collided in the summer of 2017 when Adam met
Devon ringside so she could handle his Master Hunter
and Qualified All-Age Chesapeake Bay Retriever " Hank "
(MBIS GCHP Sandbar's Hardcore Hank MH QAA) at the
Waukesha Kennel Club show in Wisconsin.
A waterfowl and pheasant hunter at heart, Hank was

Best in Show winner to have a Master Hunter title.
of age won the Central Indiana Kennel Club show in 1999.
Chris showed another Gold Butterfly winner in 2006, BISS
CH Wingssong Alydar. In 2018, MBIS/MBISS GCHG Wingssong
Winning Colors was PCA's Silver Butterfly winner.
When the couple married in 2000, Tim had been
breeding Mastiffs for nearly 20 years, and Chris had
contributed immensely to breeding decisions and the
campaigning of his top dogs. " Our goal has always been
to breed beautiful, healthy dogs with good temperament
that live a long time, " Tim says.
The gentle temperament of Millennium Mastiffs
accounts for many becoming certified as therapy dogs.
From the first litter that Tim bred out of Kodiak's Robin,
Diana and Dot were therapy dogs. " We would frequent
senior centers, where residents loved them partly because
they didn't have to bend down to pet them, " he says.
Rush, who helped nurture Marley and his littermates,
was a therapy dog as well as an important breed winner.
At 7 months of age, Rush took Winners Dog and Best of

spot on his game at Waukesha, winning Best of Breed from
the classes and capturing the major needed to finish his
championship title. Describing Hank's signature show-ring
style that would make him the breed's first Best in Show
winner to have a Master Hunter title, Adam says, " Hank
was always very animated at shows. He stood out from
the beginning. "
Adam is co-founder and co-owner of Next Generation
Gun Dog Training in Rochester, Minnesota. As head breeder
of Next Generation's Chesapeake Bay Retrievers, Adam
strives to produce versatile dogs capable of earning hunt
titles and show titles. Hank is an iconic example of the
ideal combination.
" I like a dog that is structurally sound and can do its
job all day because it is built properly, " Adam says. A native
of Long Island, New York, who enjoyed hunting along the
Eastern shore, Adam appreciates the Chessie's ability to
withstand harsh conditions with its dense, oily coat,
powerful rear legs and incredible endurance.
Meanwhile, Devon grew up stacking dogs and leading
them around at shows, following in the footsteps of her
parents, Scott and Susan Kipp, all-breed professional
handlers. She and her sister, Dylan Kipp-Keith, are thirdgeneration
dog fanciers, whose grandparents on both sides
were breeders. Their parents bred Norfolk Terriers, Brussels
Griffon and Airedale Terriers under the Huntwood prefix.
As a junior handler, Devon fell in love with Whippets
after getting " Jordan " (GCH Kamada's Happy Hour) from
