Bingo Was His Name

Don't miss this heart-wrenching story of the massive tributes to 'Bingo,' the famous LA dachshund, the "King of Sunset Junction," the "Four-Legged Mayor of Silver Lake." Bingo was hit by a car on Sunday, March 30th, and the outpouring of support from the community is absolutely phenomenal. Excerpt from LA Weekly: “He was the heart of the neighborhood,” [neighbor] Joe Keeper goes on. “Bingo gave a lot more than he took. He was a truly altruistic person. With a person, it’s a two-way relationship, but with Bingo, it was him giving all the time. Bingo was an extremely public person. On my birthday, he would come in and give me a kiss and he would stand on my foot. He didn’t have a bad thing to say about anybody. I mean, how many times in your life do you get to meet somebody like that? Bingo was a complete person; he just happened to be trapped in a dog’s body.”
See lots of pics, and read all about his mural and tributes at LA Weekly. We know that the hearts of the dachshund community goes out to Bingo's family and friends.
