'World guy' walks for diabetes awareness (VIDEO, SLIDESHOW)

Published: Monday, January 7, 2013 at 04:31 PM.

Bendl tries not to deflate the world during his treks unless absolutely necessary. Nice the Dog has taken to protecting it from people who might mistake it for a toy.

These days, now that Bendl has a van, his walks require he carry only the day’s essentials: dog food, patchwork and glue, a battery-powered air pump, cell phone and radio.

He said walking with the world was a natural fit for him. His mother was a state representative and public servant and both his parents were in the theater.

“I sort of have it in my bones,” he said.
