    Are my sentences correct?

    Are my sentences correct?
    1. Being too cold, I wore a coat.
    2. I saw the dog died. (Is this sentence mean: i) I saw the dog when it died or ii) I saw the dog when it was already dead)
    3. I made him agree to work with us.

    1 and 3 are OK. 2 is a little unusual. If you want to say that you saw the dog actually dying, you would say "I saw the dog die". If you wanted to say that you saw a dog after it had died, you would say "I saw a dead dog".
