Aloha! You're speaking to Dr. Michael Salkin
It's unlikely that a few small bites will be dangerous. d-CON contains brodifacoum - an anticoagulant rodenticide which can cause uncontrolled bleeding - usually within a few days. It would take at least 2.7 ounces of d-CON to cause life-threatening bleeding in your 35 lb dog.
To be prudent, I recommend your inducing emesis by administering 35 ml (2 measuring tablespoons + one measuring teaspoon) of 3% hydrogen peroxide by means of a small poultry baster placed between her cheek teeth and cheek. She should vomit within 15 minutes of being dosed, particularly if fed a slice of bread prior to dosing. If she doesn't vomit, please repeat the same dose. The above is predicated upon her ingesting the d-CON within an hour.
