Dog not moving as much and whines when his stomach is touched

I take my dog outside every morning so he can do his business. But one morning I opened his crate and he just layed there and stared at me. He usually jumps up and runs down stairs to go outside when I say the word outside. But this time he just sits in there. And it's weirs I let him outside when he needs to go which is when I hear whining in his crate but he doesn't do that anymore and lays in there. I have to help him out to go outside because he doesn't want to go down stairs. Then I brought him inside one morning and he started whining when I touched his stomach or picked him up. I'm really worried guys I really hope he doesn't have something that can kill him. Because that will be so horrible I've had him for 5 years. HELP!

So sorry to read that your dog is having problems.  There is no way I can tell you what might be wrong.  It could be he has some spinal issues going on.  It would be best for you to take him to your Vet for a thorough check up.  Hope he gets better soon and you find out the cause.
