Simple translation

Is the translation of this simple sentence too word-for-word or is it correct?

Use of 'y' between adjectives

My book says:

Su perro tiene una nariz pequeña y negra.
His dog has a little black nose.

Is it correct to use 'y' in this sentence?

How come this ending is reversed?

How come the last letter is reversed (o and e)? Does this have something to do with the present and past tenses?

Quiero - I want
Quiere - You want

Tome - I had
Tomo - you had
