Wisconsin woman walks her poodle while dressed as abominable snowman


A Wisconsin woman is dressing as the abominable snowman to walk her dog, and people are loving it.

She'll only introduce herself as Bumble – the abominable snow monster of the North from the classic claymation movie, "Rudolph, The Red-Nosed Reindeer" – and she told FOX 11 she's visiting from Misfit Island to "bring joy, happiness" to the people of Allouez, Wisconsin.

Bumble, who wants her identity kept secret, and Blizzard – who is actually a champion show dog known as Andy – are getting a lot of attention as they bound down the street. They plan to continue their walks through the holidays, and maybe longer, and although she doesn't have much to say, she's reminding people to, "Love all, care about all, beyond holidays," FOX 11 reports.

News of Bumble and Blizzard has spread across social media, getting the attention of national media outlets. Washington Post says "a good life tip" is for people to walk their dog while dressed as an abominable snowman, because not only does it brighten the day of others, but it's also "an extremely clever way to outsmart the elements" of a brutal Midwestern winter.

Here's some more reaction to Bumble and Blizzard:
