GMPR, GMHRCH, HRCH Rockerin Medicine Beau MH
Beau was purchased and named by my wife, Christie, as a Christmas present.  All I really wanted was a great hunting dog, but I knew nothing about training a retriever.  We joined a local NAHRA club and Beau progressed rapidly acquiring nicknames such as the “natural”; appropriate because I never knew to force fetch or whoa train him.  Beau passed the 2006 NAHRA National Invitational as well as the NAHRA Rocky Mountain Regional to attain his 1000 senior points and his GMHRCH title.  These achievements are equivalent to 50 Senior Hunt passes.  Beau passed the 2001 and 2006 Richard A. Wolters NAHRA Invitationals (the only two times it was run when he was eligible).  I did not know about APLA until I mentioned to my friend, Jim Bonham, that Beau was a natural pointer.  He suggested we try running the next APLA test in September 2002.  Beau passed CPR and MPR in the same day and, in April 2003, got his GMPR.  He then started running HRC the summer of 2007 and passed eight tests in a row to earn his HRCH title.  I believe, Beau is the first male dog in North Americato hold all four titles at the same time.  Over his lifetime, Beau never failed an APLA or HRC hunt test.  He passed 50 straight NAHRA runs (he would have passed 52, but I needed glasses and handled him into an old fall).

Besides mastering the hunt test game, Beau was a great hunting dog. He hunted and retrieved hundreds of ducks, geese and pheasants. I can’t remember the last time I had to leave the goose pit to find a wounded goose (including retrieves of over ¾ mile) thanks to Beau. He also took second place in the 2003 Open Pointing Division of the Colorado State Pheasant Championship.

Lastly, and maybe most importantly, Beau had a wonderful disposition. He was a loving and gentle companion who will be remembered as one of the most cherished members of the Lysinger family. His legacy goes on with multiple offspring with advanced titles in all facets of the hunt test game.
