Ok

The above is a great article on diphenhydramine toxicosis in dogs......your dog could have a problem at this dose but if otherwise healthy is not likley to because the dose was 8 mg/kg....

The only way to be 100% sure is to go to vet ER and have IV fluids and monitoring overnight to help flush it out the body....I hope that helps.DRB
