If it makes you feel any better, my goldens both ate more corncobs than I could count! We live in the country surrounded by cornfields. Plus its a big thing in my family to get together and shuck, boil, cut, bag, and freeze bushel upon bushel upon bushel of sweetcorn-like enough to last each family for the year! We usually did that at my grandma's house in town, and then my dad and another uncle who also lives in the country would take all the husks and cobs out and throw them in the fields. The dogs would inevitably find the place dad threw them and feast on corn cobs. Never bothered either one and Autumn lived to be 15 1/2. April is 8-she even has a more sensitive stomach and they don't seem to bother her unless she really pigs out before I catch her (and she can down an awful lot of food in less than 30 seconds!) Neither ever had issues with blockage or anything, never had to take them to the vet over it.
Edit to Add: the corncobs my girls ate were from corn that had been boiled so that the corn could be cut off the cob to bag and freeze-don't know if that makes a difference in how easily it will pass through them or not, but like I said, my girls have never had trouble and they've certainly gotten a lot when my back was turned for 3 seconds!
