> 1.  My dog and my cat is two good pets.
Use the word are instead of the word is because with a plural subject, one 
needs a plural verb.

> 2.  When we come to our next convention we will have an election.
I would change it to read as follows, At our next convention, we will have 
an election.
> 3.  I am a lineman for the county and I drive the main road.
insert a comma after the word county.
> 4.  Time flies like an arrow: fruit flies like a banana.

Use a semicolon instead of a colon.

> 6.  My father was born in 1927!
Use a period instead of an explamation point.

> Pension.

Use a period at the end.

Should be Donald Trump.

> 10.  Many foreign policy issues are handled by the Secretary of State.

I would capitalize the S in Secretary and in State and make it a capital U 
in United And a capital S in States.
