Something awesome is afoot in the town of Allouez, Wisconsin. Residents have been spotting Bumble, the Abominable Snow Monster of the North from Rudolph the Red-Nosed Reindeer, taking a fluffy white poodle for walks on a leash. Or rather, it’s someone dressed in an impressive Bumble costume, which is still pretty awesome as far as we’re concerned.

As reports of the mysterious sightings rolled in, Wisconsin’s Fox 11 News got on the case and managed to track down and speak with Bumble and her poodle, whose name is Blizzard. When a reporter asked Bumble, “Why are you walking around with your dog dressed as a character from a children’s program?”, she replied in a delightfully gruff Bumble voice: “Bring joy, happiness.”

“While Bumble gives out plenty of waves, and some hugs, she doesn’t have a lot to say. However, she did leave us with one lasting message. “Love all, care about all, beyond holidays,” said Bumble.

We are honoring Bumble’s request to not reveal who she really is. As for Blizzard the poodle, it’s a show dog that normally goes by Andy when it’s not out walking with Bumble.”

But don’t just take our word for it, treat yourself to a bit of wonderfully weird holiday delight by watching the actual news video clip here.

THE TIP-OFF: GET THE PERFECT BLOWOUT WITH BUMBLE AND BUMBLE

No two blow dries are created equal.

If you’re like us, the New Year means you’ve got a litany of self-improvement goals to tackle STAT. Your list is so long, you may find yourself too overwhelmed to keep your hair looking fly with regular blowouts. Before you resign to embark on your month-long juice cleanse journey wearing a perma-topknot, read these DIY FYIs by a Bumble and bumble blow dry pro. BECKY PEDERSON

STEP ONE: Choose the blow dry styler that will work best for your hair.

Repair Blow Dry: best for hair that’s dry or damaged from color.

Straight Blow Dry: best for hair that’s course, curly, or frizzy.

All-Style Blow Dry: works on everyone, but best for hair that’s fine or oily

STEP TWO: Spray Thickening Hairspray all over damp hair, from roots to ends.

STEP THREE: Rake your selected blow dry styler through your hair, from roots to ends.

STEP FOUR: Hand dry your hair until it is about 80% dry. To hand dry, use your fingers to move your hair back and forth across your head. This creates volume, shape, and helps eliminate cowlicks.

STEP FIVE: Section hair into five small sections. Blow dry each section using a round or flat brush, directing airflow down the length of the hair. Start with the sections at the top of your crown and work your way down and back.

STEP SIX: Finish by spraying Cityswept Finish through your hair’s midshaft and ends. This will hold your style while creating separation and sheen.

My best friend hasn’t been doing so well. Our four-year-old cat Bumble has been dealing with complications that occurred after a dental procedure she had done at the end of February. She won’t eat or drink and has been struggling with getting around the house. I’ve set up a GoFundMe campaign to help with her vet bills, which are rising by the day. 

Ever since she showed up on our doorstep in 2012 as a lost little stray looking for a home, she has brought so much love into our house. Her favorite activity is running up and down the stairs, carrying her favorite stuffed lobster toy, which she likes to plop on people while they’re sleeping. Now, her lack of mobility has been hitting her hard and it breaks my heart to see our previously active kitty struggling with basic tasks. 

We’re determined to do everything possible to get our beloved kitty back on her feet. Bumble is currently at an animal hospital, receiving IV fluids and medication. We’re here for Bumble no matter what but with mounting vet bills from her medications (antibiotics, anti-nausea meds, anti-inflammatories, etc) and the fees from her hospital stay, we’re having some difficulty dealing with it all. We’re hoping you’ll find it in your hearts to help this beautiful brave little cat receive the best care possible. Bumble is a trooper and all we want is for her to be healthy, happy, and once she’s better, home. Even the smallest bit helps! Thank you!

And please, please, please signal boost! I’m usually not great about asking for help but this is my baby and there is nothing I wouldn’t do for her.
