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.
