Be the first to offer your condolences on Amos's Tribute Wall
Amos Helicke, the beloved and fierce Jack Russel terrier (terrorist), went over the Rainbow Bridge on July 15, 2020, to be with Ben (German Shepherd), Daisy (mixed breed), Crumpet (miniature cockapoo); and Winston (Jack Russel terrier). He was 15 years old and will be missed forever by his parents Mary and Jim Helicke of Washington.
He joined the Helicke family when was 8 weeks old. He was very ornery, and joined with his sister Abbey in the mischievous fun of eating through a reclining chair and taking bites out of the basement steps.
Amos knew how to open the door to let himself out, however, he never learned how to close the door when he came back in. He jumped like a jumping bean and could actually do a flip to catch a ball. He always found the “squeak” in a toy, and therefore a squeaky toy never lasted more than a day.
He was a smiler, showing his teeth at every happy moment. House guests sometimes needed convinced that he was friendly. His wagging, stubby tail, as well as his body pushed sideways, always gave away his unique display of joy.
Amos knew a lot of tricks that he and his sister could do in unison. He was always on the hunt for small critters and definitely wasn’t happy when other dogs were nearby.
He loved to eat carrots and would follow his parents around until he got one.
The Helicke house is different without Amos. They hope he is as happy as he made them and they want him to know that he has their unconditional love forever.
