I'm trying to write a little piece to describe my dog in Eng. Could anyone here to check and correct my grammar to let me know my problem in Eng. Thank you!

"My puppy is called Roger. She is two years old now. Having a pet is really an interesting experience. The feelings are so impress. In certain extend, having a pet is really like raising a child. My whole interior motherhood has all been pull out by her. I know I might not be her "number 1" master(as my husband is), she might not be that obey to me as my husband, I still enjoy so much the time with her and taking care of her. As long as I know she's living happily with us, having a healthy condition, I feel happy and great. I found that she has a very strong sense of feelings that she knows when we are happy and sad, and it seems that she knows some of our thinkings. And she loves going out. Everything we said to her,"Let's go out for a walk." Then, she become so excited, keep jumping and hoping and leading us to the front door of the house to let go."

Roger is a man's name normally in English! Is Roger male or female? If the dog is male then use HE and HIM.

My puppy is called Roger, and she is two years old. Having a pet is an interesting experience. In certain extent, having a pet is really like raising a child. My maternal instincts have all been aroused by her. I know that I am not her "number 1" master (as my husband is), and she might not be as obedient to me as my husband, but I still enjoy having time with her and taking care of her. As long as I know she's happy living with us, in a healthy condition, I feel happy. I found that she has a very strong sense of our moods and she knows when we are happy and sad, it seems that she knows some of our thoughts. She loves going out, every time we say to her, "let's go out for a walk." She becomes so excited, jumping and hopping while leading us to the front door."

The feelings are so impress. - I didn't understand your meaning here. The feelings are so impressive? Impressive wouldn't read well in English. The feelings I have for her run deep.
It's a great help. Thank you very much!

You're welcome. Do you understand why I have made the changes - if not copy and paste the parts into a reply and I'll explain.
Hi Dave Phillips,

You're really kind and helpful. Here, I've a question.

"I know that I am not her "number 1" master (as my husband is), and she might not be as obedient to me as my husband, but I still enjoy having time with her and taking care of her." ---> pinpoint to the second part of the sentence, it means that my dog, Roger is more obedient to my husband than to me? What I want to say is, Roger obey to my husband in the first place and me the second.

Besides, if it's possible and you have the time, would you also review and check my other piece of writing entitled "Describing the weather"? I just feel write some piece of paragraphs to practice the grammar and expression in English. I really want to learn more and be able to say accurate and fluent English that people understand what I want to express.

Thank you very much!
Hi Dave Phillips,

My another post's subject which I also want you to take a look is, "About weather". Thank you
Students: Are you brave enough to let our tutors analyse your pronunciation?
I think then you could re-write its section to say;

I am fully aware that Roger (as all dogs do) has a sense of hierarchy and places my husband above myself, however I still enjoy etc.

You can always state that she is an obedient dog in another place.

I did briefly look at describing the weather (prior to this one) and started to lose the gist of your meaning so have left it for someone else who may be able to make a better job of it than I.
Yes, that's exactly what I want to say. Thank you!

Hi Miyabi,
I relaize that you already have received help, but I thought I'd like to make a couple of observations which may help improve the flow of the paragraph.

* Very few people will consider a two year old dog a puppy.
* The common expression is "To a certain extent"
* As long as she is happy and healthy, I am happy
* I found that she has a very strong sense of feelings that she knows when we are happy or sad, and sometimes what we are thinking.
* Every time when we said "let's go for a walk", she would become excited. (jumping, hoping... is not really necessary, because that is what dogs do when they are excited anyway)

Hope that helps.
