Famous L.A .wiener dog killed by car

Bingo, the Dachshund who ruled Sunset Junction in the Silver Lake area of Los Angeles, died Sunday, reported Jenny Burman’s Echo Park Blog.

She received an e-mail announcing

Hello friends, many of you have probably heard this sad, sad news already but our sweet BINGO, (Sarah Dale’s dog, the king of Silverlake/Sunset Junction, Pull My Daisy’s mascot, bacon eater, champion of wiener races and a lover to many) was hit by a car last Sunday and passed away. … He was an unbelievable little man who made everyone smile. I knew him since he was a little puppy. He had the best social skills of any being I know and taught me a lot about love and affection.

A memorial service for Bingo the Doxie will be held Sunday. He was profiled in LA Weekly in 2004.

Update: Another Bingo tribute.
