Peter Griffin’s best friend is dead.
Brian, the talking dog who has been a staple on Fox’s animated hit “Family Guy” since its premiere in 1999, died on Sunday’s “Life of Brian” episode.
Seth MacFarlane voiced the cynical, quick-witted animal. His last words as Brian: “You’ve given me a wonderful life. I love you all.”
Brian was struck by a car in the episode, and Stewie was unable to use his time machine to save him.
A month later, the Griffins got a new dog, Vinnie, voiced by “Sopranos” star Tony Sirico.
So is Brian gone for good? Or will MacFarlane and company find a way to bring their favorite pooch back for more laughs? Let us know what you think in the comments section below.
