Five-year-old Dawn Cook enjoyed her adventure Sunday evening after she wandered away from her grandmother's yard in a densely wooded area about three miles south of Calwood in Callaway County.

"But I don't want to do that again," Dawn said Monday after her Sunday night ordeal, "I scratched my legs."

Dawn said she and her dog Pepper were lost and then it got dark.
