Liz and Graham Hampson were distressed after learning that their two dogs went missing. They did everything just to bring back lost dogs Charlie and Theo home after they vanished on June 16.
According to the Telegraph, Hampson’s son, John, went to take both miniature schnauzers for a walk to the mountains in Red Pike fell in the English Lake District, when suddenly, a thick fog started rolling in.
The Hampsons took to social media to ask for help and over 120 people joined the search party for Charlie and Theo. Two drones were also flown to help with the search. It took four days of searching but still, the dogs were nowhere in sight. Liz and Graham were heartbroken but giving up wasn’t an option. They then thought of a brilliant idea to camp out near the spot where the dogs had gone missing and started cooking sausages.
Charlie and Theo went missing after a walk out on the hills.
Liz and Graham had camped overnight calling out to Charlie and Theo, who love sausages. The Hampsons thought that the smell of their favorite food might draw them out — and the couple thought right! The pair hurriedly scampered to the site moments later.
Their family, the Hampsons, cooked sausages out near the spot where the lost dogs had gone missing.
Charlie and Theo were able to return home because of the smell of sausages.
“When they first appeared it was like a mirage. I could not believe it was them,” Liz told The Telegraph.
“My husband ran up the hill to grab them as I was just shaking and crying. I could not function. They absolutely love sausages. They have them every Sunday for breakfast, so if there was one food they were going to come back for, it was sausages.”
Liz went on to say that Theo and Charlie are part of the family and it would be awful if they are not around.
The family even went on to joke that Charlie and Theo, who are father and son, went missing because they decided to have a Father’s Day weekend.
