I petted the dog yesterday.
I will pet the dog.
There is also "I pet the dog", which says that I pet habitually the dog.
"I pet the cat before work and now I'm covered with cat hair."
And by the way, "a lot" is two words. It's a very frequent mistake by native speakers, but makes pedantic people like me wince.
My dictionary lists them that way, anyway, and it's an American Heritage Dictionary.
Anonymous:this is not resolved, Petted is not a word.
Petted is not a word. Tell that to my cat. I just pettedhim a moment ago.
Anonymous:Petted is a word, but it sounds ridiculous. Stick with pet.
