'Batkid Begins' official movie trailer

Miles Scott, the 5-year-old leukemia survivor better known as "Batkid," won over the hearts of San Francisco (and pretty much the entire Internet) when his Make-a-Wish request was to be Batman for a day. In November, the city of San Francisco came together to make that happen, with thousands of people lining the streets to simulate Gotham City. Now, filmmaker Dana Nachman is trying to bring Miles' story to the big screen. Nachman has started an Indiegogo campaign to raise money for the film, titled "Batkid Begins," which now has its first official trailer, featuring Miles' parents, Hans Zimmer, and more.

Pit bull puppy snuggles with baby

You have not seen cute until you've seen a cherubic baby and sweet little pit bull who just so happen to be best friends. Enter Eisleigh and Clyde. Eisleigh is a 10-week-old baby girl living in North Carolina with her parents. Clyde is their 8-week-old pit bull. Growing up together, the two little ones have become the best buddies. Mama Brandi Hodges, a 25-year-old animal lover, and her fiance, Madison Hatton, have been sharing photos of the adorable friendship on their Instagram accounts. In the photos, Eisleigh smiles with her furry pal and the two take naps together. One particularly precious moment caught on video was when Clyde hopped into Eisleigh's bouncer to sleep beside her.

Big sis doesn't want little brother to grow up

A little girl is having a hard time accepting her baby brother won't be a baby forever. YouTube user Alex Miller posted a video titled "Sadie doesn't want her brother to grow up" and it is adorable. She cries over the fact he won't stay the cute baby he is now forever.

Joey helping raise money for play room at LR Animal Village

The Little Rock Animal Village was presented a $10,000 check for "Joey's Play Room" from the Friends of the Little Rock Animal Village. Around $2,800 of the donation was raised from Joey the Garden Cat's Facebook friends. Joey's Play Room is set to give the cats at the Animal Village a place to get exercise and play, which they can't do very well in the cages they are typically confined to. The plans will help give the cats a more active life and make them healthier. Joey's Play Room, which will serve as a welcoming area to the shelter, is expected to cost about $60,000.
