Do you know if everything he ate did come out in the stool?

Was there any vomiting prior to this?
Hello, you may have gone offline so I will answer based on what you have stated in your question.
If the dog is not vomiting, is eating and drinking normally, as well as acting normally it may be intestinal upset due to eating a foreign item. What we do with intestinal upset is fast the dog from food for 24 hours, can have water, then start a bland diet of boiled chicken and cooked white rice. This will give the intestinal tract the time it needs to become less inflamed from the trauma of passing a non food item.
If the dog suddenly stops eating, is vomiting and the diarrhea continues it would be worrisome that there is still something foreign in the intestinal tract that the dog is not able to pass. This would require an x ray and possible surgery.
Here is more on obstruction of the bowel
That is encouraging that everything else is normal. One thing to caution you about. Should you see any of the string /carpet stuck in rectum with a piece sticking out do not pull it. Seek vet help immediately. Keep watch for any of the other signs above as well.
