I agree with your title. WOW. Your poor kids. Do any have pets of their own after all that trauma?
You delivered this well and being a dog lover, I really enjoyed your last paragraph.

Keep writing!

Your Title, along with your first paragraph, tells it all in a nutshell. It's witty, but sad; loving but heartbreaking, and definitely has its "ups and downs"...but your last paragraph tells it like it is. Nothing like that loyal, delightful "tail wagging" of unconditional love! Nicely done and very well written. Kudos!
This is a very interesting history of your family pets, revealing, too, a delightful family. Your conclusion is exactly right.
