    Incidentally, the lethal dose of milk is: 22 lbs.
    Water: 22 lbs.
    Orange juice: 22 lbs.
    Gravel: 22 lbs.
    Cotton balls: 22 lbs.

    Imagine dying after 21 lbs. "Sorry," says the medical examiner, "he was short of the legal limit of chocolate, but the cheeseburger he was dipping in the fondue caused him to choke. No one knew the Heimlich."

    The LD50 of the theobromine in Chocolate for humans is 1000mg/kg. I don't know how much chocolate that is though and different types of chocolate have differing amounts.

    So basically, impossible. But not for a dog!

    The darker the chocolate, the better it goes down though
