Today in our Pets of OMP section, meet Beckett, the English Cocker Spaniel who “loves exploring the beautiful Old Mission Peninsula,” says his human, Bonnie Dankert.

Both of the photos in this story were taken on their walks along Peninsula Drive.

Bonnie says Mr. Beckett is seven years old, and “he never fails to somehow introduce me to lovely people living in our area.”

She adds, “He is a character … and such a buddy!”

According to the American Kennel Club, “English Cocker Spaniel lovers often use the word ‘merry’ to describe their breed. Upbeat in the field and mellow at home, this compact, silky-coated bird dog is widely admired for his delightful personality and irresistible good looks.”

I can tell just by looking at the photos of Beckett with his soulful eyes, that describes him perfectly.

Thank you for sharing Beckett with Old Mission Gazette readers, Bonnie!
