I think I have the subjunctive figured out now. Well, maybe not. Can someone check my work? I'm not very good at French either so it may have tons of mistakes. Thank you! I needed to use the subjunctive 7 times so can you check that too? Thanks!

Quand nous sommes allés en Californie la semaine dernière, ma famille ne pourrais pas amener mon chien. Alors, nous avons demandé que mes voisons le regardent. Ils dit qu'ils seraient très heureux de lui y accueillir chez eux, puisque ils ont déjà deux chiens. Mais notre chien est a peu bizzare. En fait, je crois qu'il est né sur un autre planète. Ainsi, nous avons écrit un liste. Tout d'abord, il aime manger n'importe quoi. Il n'est pas vrai qu'il mange seulement de la nourriture. Ça lui est égal. Puis, il joue seulement avec son grenouille. C'est son joue le plus favori. Je doute qu'il joue avec un autre. Et enfin, il déteste l'escalier. Il aboie toujour quand il le voit. Il est vraiment drôle.

    ne pourrais pas = This is Conditional (would not be able) with the wrong ending on it. You began with the Passé Composé so this should be either Le Passé Composé (n'a pas pu) or best with l'Imparfait = ne pouvait pas = was not able to...

    le regardent. = to look at? = to watch out for? (Again, if you do not provide the English of what you think you are saying, or want to say, I can't really help you! Are you the one I gave the review of the Subjunctive to the other day?) = se charge de lui (to take care of it)

    Ils dit = "ils" is plural but "dit" is singular = the verb must match the subject = Ils disent...

    heureux de lui = happy from it? Restate this = happy to do this? = heureux de le faire

    accueillir chez eux, = to welcome at their house? Restate = et de le garder chez eux (and to keep him at their house?)....puisque ils ont = puisqu'ils

    est a peu bizzare. = looks like English interference ("a") and spelling problem = est un peu bizarre

    un liste = gender problem = une liste

    IF you are the one I typed the "rules to use the Subjunctive" for, go back and review those. When you MUST use the Subjunctive 7 times, you need to set it up so you are required to use the Subjunctive 7 times. You have not done this. AND, if you are not the one I typed that all out for, let me know and I'll find it for you.)

    Here is 1 Subjunctive: Nous avons demandé que (subjonctif)

    Here's the second = il n'est pas vrai que/qu'il (subjonctif)


    It would appear then that you need to rework this paragraph. Repost then, when you are relatively sure that you have 7 verbs in the Subjunctive.

    P.S. Yes, it was you! Here it is so you can review it again, or better yet, print it out so you have it to refer to:

    Here is your correct version but you don't have enough subjcontive tenses.
