Just cause it was Lynn I kept waiting for the other punny shoe to drop! Really fun one.

Somehow I forgot to do last night's puzzle, so I needed a fix. Then I was enjoying this one till I burned a dozen letters on a proper name I never heard of. Game over.

Finished with 30 seconds to spare! Fun puzzle. Looking forward to meeting the pets.

Thanks to all of you for your comments.

Ken, was it "Ferb" who tripped you up? Phineas and Ferb is a very popular Disney cartoon that is only familiar to me because of my grandkids. Since I am often the last person to know something, I thought everyone else knew who they were!

Like Virtus, I barely made the deadline because, although I know who Heinlein is, I've never read any of his books, and the possessive form made it that much tougher to crack.

A few people wanted to know about the pets featured in this WP, so here they are:

My first dog, Sebastian, was a spitz with a happy go lucky disposition. He was the companion of my childhood. He loved going camping and was always first to get in the car when he saw the sleeping bags being loaded. He lived to be 14.

We adopted Pretzel from a shelter and could never figure out what kind of dog he was. I was only 3 when we moved across the country and gave Pretzel away.

Dodger was a big golden tabby cat with a lot of personality. If he was established in a particular spot (usually draped over the book you had been reading) there was no way to budge him without getting a disdainful glare, after which you'd be ignored until meal time.

Phineas belongs to my grandkids. He is a lovable 2 year old pug who goes crazy for ice cubes and popcorn. He rarely barks, but his snorts and grunts are an amusing communications system.

Dora is a brindle Italian Mastiff who weighs more than I do. She's fiercely loyal and great with kids. She lives with my daughter.

Chinook, a German Shepherd cross, was the guardian of my children when we had our farm in Southern New Mexico. No rattlesnake dared invade their play yard with Chinook on the watch. Maybe he was part mongoose? He was with us for about 13 years.

Digger was the patriarch of our guinea pig family. He should have found his way into the "begat" portion of the Bible because he was so prolific. I think we ended up with 22 offspring.

D'Artagnan, or Dartsy as we called him, was my mother's toy poodle cross. He was quite entertaining and affectionate. After my mother's death he was disconsolate and completely stopped eating.

Seaver is my silver point German Shepherd, now 12. He's highly intelligent and is a Mets fan, of course. We are both contemplating a boycott of this year's World Series.

Atticus was my adored cat who had long black hair and hazel eyes. No matter what other pets were in the household, Atticus was the undisputed lawgiver. He liked to wake me by pushing books from my headboard onto my head. Hey, it's time for breakfast!

It would be Ferb. I tried Herb, Gerb, Verb, Zerb, ... never heard of them, probably because my zero kids never bothered to give me grandkids.

The only Phineas I know said another sucker or two was born in the time it took me to type this

Very fine puzzle. The personalization in two phrases almost threw me too many curves.

Yet you'd keep putting the books back on the headboard. Looks like Atticus had more than his fellow cats trained!

Yes, Atticus trained me quite well, didn't even need an alarm clock.

Luckily, the brain damage seems minimal. Unless you count the punning....
