Can dogs eat ice cream or will they die?

please dont laugh. this is not a joke. my dog got a hold of my dish of icecream and ate quite a bit. is he okay? will he die?
Update: hes a 6 month old black newfoundland
Update 2: now people are saying its okay if it wasnt chocolate but it was vanilla with chocolate brownie chunks??? is that still bad?
