Then, the third-born, a girl, will join university later this year. Unlike her elder sister and brother, she will study a science course-medicine.

Because of the seven-year age gap between the third and fourth child, (both girls), the younger one is still in primary expected to complete that level at the end of this year. Our youngest male child now aged 8, stays in a boarding school just like all his older siblings.

For me, I don,t like pets very much, but my wife and children do. About three years ago, they adopted a stray dog (Stranger) against my will. But Stranger has become a useful companion of late. She looks healthy now, and she has gained weight.

Perhaps in future, I will consider rearing another dog because of the benefits we are now enjoying from Stranger.

I got married since 2010. We hadn't have any children. We are looking forward to have one or two kids in the future. It must be fun looking at them play in the garden. Luckily, We had found a dog two years ago. The lady that had her loved her very much but the owner of her studio didn't let her keep dogs. The dog is two years old. I felt in love with her at the fist sight. She is a German Shepherd and Husky mix, therefore she is extremely beautiful, smart and energetic. She has a tons of energy that is helping us to do exercise with her everyday.

I am married and we have two boys. Our friend gave us a cat as house warming party. He got her from SPCA and she was six months old. We named her Mew and she was 18 pounds. She was with us fro fourteen years and she passed away two years back.
Our son found a stray cat and he brought her home. We named her Sofiya. But we decided to get her a company. So we adopted Simba from SPCA.
Our boys wanted a dog and we adopted a bugle dog from a local shelter. His name Snoopy and he ways 44 ponds. E is five years old.

Hi !
In my family we are five plus a dog. I have an older brother who is married his wife's name is Karen. I live with my parents both are retired and they are enjoying life as God allows them to travel. I am not a pet lover but I guess the rest of the family is. I guess that the dog is the closest version to a grandchild to my parents. My brother and his wife have been married for three years not planning to have any kids at least for now. I love children but I'm not married. My parents are Awesome people. My father is older than my mom. I guess he is twelve years older. My brother is nine years older than his wife. Mom is the sweetest and most loyal woman I've ever known in my life. She is funny and there is no doubt God has given my mom the happiness she brings into our house. I love spending time with my parents and I also love the idea of not moving out of my house 'till I marry since that is our tradition in a latin family. My brother leaves about a block from my parent's house and when my parents are traveling my brother and his wife look after the dog. His name is Capitan we call him "Capi" and I have to admit I've learn to love the dog because I know my dad loves him a lot but I'm not ready to look after a dog !

So your grammar is very good. In a few places, I put a period and started a new sentence. If you can improve on that, it will help your writing.
