Our gentle boy Otto passed away peacefully surrounded by his loving family on June 25, 2022, a few weeks shy of his fifteenth birthday. Born in Salem, Oregon, Otto was a handsome wire-haired dachshund who spent most of his life in Seattle, raised and loved by a community of humans. He grew up with his cousin Flora, who became more like a sister, a bonded pair on life’s journey. In 2018 he moved with his family to Waitsburg, Washington, where he quickly fell in love with his large back yard, the perfect place to play his favorite game, fetch. Some of his happiest times were taking vacations to the coast, finding driftwood sticks, and digging in the sand. He was a loving boy whose joy was infectious. He will be sorely missed. A private ceremony will be held on a later date at his favorite beach. His family would like to thank the wonderful staff at Animal Clinic East in Walla Walla, including the comforting care of Dr. Lentz and Dr. Fazzari.
