    if it is day or night

    My dog is a good servant. It looks after my house, no matter if it is day or night without complaining.

    Is the phrase in bold correct? If not, how should it be reworded?

    Many thanks.

    Re: if it is day or night

    It's fine, though when we talk affectionately about the dog, we usually say "he" or "she" rather than "it."
