It may be true everywhere, but Coachella Valley seems to love its dogs more than most communities. Our Sunday letter of the week was about a stray puppy found on the streets of Joshua Tree. The couple who adopted him named him Mr. Bingo.
Here’s a follow up from Rachel Druten of Palm Desert, author of the letter:
“You have made Mr. Bingo a celebrity, but he is handling it well. When my husband went to the dog park this morning someone had laminated and posted the article from The Desert Sun, “Mr. Bingo Gives Back,” on the gate. Mr. Bingo is not letting the fame go to his head. He is still the same happy, humble, tail-wagging, slurpy kisses pup as ever.”
