Family Guy took a sad turn Sunday, killing off Brian the dog by having him get hit by a car. In the episode, fittingly titled "Life of Brian," Stewie and his canine companion experimented with time travel, but by the end of the episode Stewie's time machine was broken beyond repair. The show also jumped ahead a month and introduced the Griffin's new dog, Vinnie.

Watch a tribute video to Brian (who was voiced by Family Guy creator Seth MacFarlane) below. Are you surprised Family Guy killed him off?
