Your use of aspect has been turning into tense lately. Be careful!

As far as your story goes, you didn't complete having a dog many years 
ago. *ben law' */dog/ *vIghaj* /many years ago I had a dog. /On the 
other hand, the aspect suffix on *vIpongta'* is appropriate.

You dropped the *-DI'* on those other dependent clauses. You also 
misspelled *paw*. *motlh HatlhmajDaq vIpawDI' 'ej */dog/*vetlh 
vIje'ta'DI' 'ej vIqotlhta'DI'* /usually when I arrived in our 
countryside and when I had fed that dog and when I had tickled it./

I probably would have put the *motlh* just before the *'oHvaD,* if I'm 
understanding your intention correctly.
