The danger with cooked bones of any type is that the cooking process increases he hardness of the bone and often results in splintering. Chances are, your dog will be fine. She might have some constipation issues when they finally come out (bones, raw and cooked tend to produce a much more firm stool).

Keep your dog under CLOSE observation over the course of the next several days. If you notice 1) painful abdomen, 2) lethargy, 3) vomiting, 4) blood in the stools, 5) severely decreased appetite, or 6) no BM production, please seek the advice of a veterinarian ASAP to rule out blockage or gastrointestinal injury.

I heard that boiled bones won't hurt a dog. However, you should still see a vet just in case.
