Miss Lark is a minor character in Mary Poppins and its sequel. She's an elegant woman who has a dog named Andrew. At the beginning of the original film, Bert mentions that "Miss Lark likes to walk in the park with Andrew," which shows the reason for her presence there during his musical performance as a one-man band.
