Donate to Us and Get Free Shit

As Loyal Readers know The Lucky Puppy has been our main source of income for a while now. Generous donations kept us from being homeless and we thank you. But I can’t lie, begging is depressing me and that’s why I’m a Disabled Veteran.

How Do I Talk to a Crew Chief?

There are many times when it is necessary to actually talk to a Dedicated Crew Chief. You might be a pilot preparing to fly and want to know if the jet you're climbing into is safe.
