Yep, they can digest rawhide.
How do I know? Before I knew any better, I bought some rawhide bones while at grocery store shopping for family, and my dog really enjoyed chewing them. He did digest them fine but had yellow runny poop the next day, so I stopped giving them. Then I found out that rawhide is treated with lots of chemicals, and is dangerous because it can cause blockages. Luckily they seemed to just give my dog runny poop. It sounds like your dog digested hers fine!
Here are some other chewies we've tried, with my dog's reviews (he is 76 lbs):
Antler (elk, split deer): Friend's beagle loves, but to me these are "too hard, too tasteless".
Beef Trachea: yum! crunchy! like eating a bag of chips!
Beef Strap (dried beef tendon): yum! crunchy! like eating chips too!
Bully Rings, Bully Sticks: yum! a good chew, too bad it's gone in under 10 minutes...so my human should really empty her wallet and get me the BIG ones...
Himalayan Yak Chews: I thought this thing would be a fast snack, but wow it's a LOT of work. I chew on this if I'm bored and there's nothing better, but really this thing is a LOT of work, I've only left toothmarks in this thing even though it tastes pretty good.
Raw Meaty Bones: I think I would like these but my human thinks it's unsanitary/gross so I haven't gotten to try yet.
Nylabones: Not tried yet. The black lab we know, bit off a huge piece of hers and freaked everybody out.
** I know puppies are different from adult dogs so there may be things that are not yet safe for her to chew or are too hard for her right now? Not sure how old your pup is. **
