LONG BEACH, California - Use 'wearables' with GPS tracking to keep track of wandering dogs. Others help you track animals' physical activity.

"We know the dog is eating or drinking, sitting, standing, lying on its right or left side, we know everything they do. If any condition is developing it will send an alert to the owner in real time, it also informs the veterinarian," Veterinarian Dr. Asaf Dagan said.

Now, two companies have the latest in wearable pet technology: collars that can check for a fever, monitor pulse and respiration, and even indicate if your pet is in pain.

PetPace, based in Burlington, Massachusetts, has a medical collar that can measure a dog's vital signs and

Sharing is caring, and no one knows that better than these young twins.

When 5-year-old Bradley Godish required a stem cell transplant to help eliminate his leukemia, his twin sister, Charlotte “Charlie,” was the first to step up to the plate as the donor, WGN-TV reported. With Bradley’s cancer now in remission, the duo is back in the swing of things, with a friendship even more special than before.

“They’re best friends,” Brian Godish, the twins’ dad, told WGN-TV. “Now the bond that they share is as strong as it can possibly be."

Bradley was diagnosed in November with acute myeloid leukemia, and the best option for treatment was chemotherapy and a bone marrow transplant, People.co

They are calling this a once in a lifetime event, however.

Wind data for most Oregon coast towns does not go back much beyond 15 years, said NWS meteorologist Colby Neuman. But one thing is for sure: this weekend's wild wind storm did break the record in Astoria for August with a gust of 62. Portland also broke an August record with a gust of 41 mph at the airport.

Other reports were unheard of for August: Yachats at a gust of 68 mph, Oceanside at 90, Garibaldi had 86 and Seaside had its Hood to Coast base and towers torn up with a gust at 69.

Most reports were in the 50 to 70 mph range, Neuman said. If they were records for August, it's impossible to verify that, as data only goes

U.S. Labor Secretary Thomas Perez and his Secret Service escort popped into Portland Aug. 26 to chat about paid leave with Oregon Gov. Kate Brown and Congresswoman Suzanne Bonamici.

As a reporter for the Northwest Labor Press, it’s not every day I get face-time with a cabinet member, a governor, and a congresswoman, so I wanted to make the most of it.

Perez’ Portland visit was the last stop in a five-city “Shared Prosperity for A Stronger America” tour. Such tours are becoming an annual ritual for the Secretary of Labor — seeking local media coverage for President Obama’s plans and accomplishments in the weeks leading up to Labor Day.

This year, two of the five tour stops were in di

At any given moment there are an estimated 5,000 commercial airplanes in the skies over the United States and more than 11,000 worldwide and that number increases every month. Their exhaust is poisoning our skies, our waters, fish, and our children and contributing vastly to global warming.

The only way to avoid the inevitable doom is to remove all aircraft from the skies, worldwide. And that's never going to happen. No on

(Oregon Coast) – One of the more distinct (and surreal) pleasures of hitting the beaches of Oregon is when you find just the right combination of a seamless blend of sea, sky and sand. It's not simply that the sky is reflected in a wet beach – although that's the basics you need to get such dreamlike drama. It's the awe-inspiring gigantic-ness of it. The sheer size of the sky in the sand, on such a scale that it's a tad disorienting.

FEDERAL WAY, Washington - A falling tree killed a 10-year-old girl Saturday as a windstorm whipped through the South Sound.

The girl who died was from the Burien area, police said. She was killed around noon at a birthday party in Federal Way.
