Chocolate is poisonous to dogs. As others have stated, theobromine is not very good for them. <a href="http://www.petplace.com/dogs/why-dogs-can-t-eat-chocolate/page1.aspx">See this article</a>

hes immune cause a couple years ago he had the bags of hershy kisses(wrappers and all) shiny poop

(its a myth)

Whats a myth? That chocolate is bad, or that the dog is immune?

Chocolate is very, very, VERY bad for dogs! That's scientifically proven.

It is? I always though it was a myth...

Its not, and its got pretty serious effects.....

Chocolate contains theobromine. A naturally occurring stimulant found in the cocoa bean, theobromine increases urination and affects the central nervous system as well as heart muscle. While amounts vary by type of chocolate, it's the theobromine that is poisonous to dogs.

They can't metabolise theobromine, it can be fatal. However, Hershey's may not contain that much cacao, or the dog may have some genetic-mutation...
