It has been said that Babe Ruth's illness during spring training of 1925 was caused by binging on hot dogs and soda pop before a game. According to the related link, "Babe Ruth once ate 12 hot dogs & had 8 bottles of soda between games of a double header. He was reportedly rushed to the hospital after the game with a severe case of indigestion."
While we have no historical information on the volume of hot dogs Babe Ruth has consumed in his lifetime, we can compare it to some statistics provided by the National Sausage and Hot Dog Council.
The National Sausage and Hot Dog Council estimates Americans eat 7 billion hot dogs during peak season, from Memorial Day to Labor Day. That can be broken down to 818 hot dogs per second. Much of that consumption occurs at various sporting events. Major League Baseball's ballpark's will sell approximately 30 million hot dogs in a season. That is enough to round the bases 41,667 times. Also, interesting to note, an average hot dog vendor will sell approximately 150 hot dogs per game and 10,000 to 12,000 hot dogs per season.
While the council isn't able to give you an exact figure on how many hot dogs each person eats (everyone is different and has different tastes) they can estimate that if 20 billion hot dogs are consumed by Americans in one year, it can be broken down to about 70 hot dogs per person per year.
Babe Ruth died when he was 53 years old. If we multiply 53 by 70 it equals 3,710 hot dogs consumed over the course of his lifetime.
About 50,000 were sold before and during the game. For 2009, the figure was just over 55,000.

* So you'll buy more bread (no, because you can certainly buy buns in many other sizes, including 8) * To maximize waste and make sure some of the product goes bad and you have to buy more. (no, that's not an effective goal in corporate thinking. You'd have two to spare) * 2 of the hot dogs always fall through the grill so you only need 8 buns. (simply not true in general. It may happen, but not universal.) * Because someone in the bunch probably eats low carb!
The real reason is that each manufacturer has its own interests. They aren't the same entity. Hot dog manufacturers prefer to have packages weigh exactly a pound. It's easier to measure, sell, store, etc. Thus there are packages with 6 or even 4 larger, but the weight should add up to a pound, regardless. It happens to be that the most manageable size of hot dogs are an eighth of a pound, or 2 ounces.
The bakers have a different issue: pans. They use trays in various formations. The reason that a dozen is such a traditional baker's number is that it can be set up in configurations of 3X4 or 4X3 (or 2X6, or 6X2, but that's not common). When it comes to pans and ovens, maximum efficiency is key. Ten buns means it must be 2 rows of 5, which simply doesn't always work. The 3X4 rectangle is more convenient. == ==

Most hot dogs don't contain anything harmful to dogs... however, they are not nutritionally balanced for a dog. A lot of the foods humans eat are, to put it mildly, trash. We have a very artificial diet, and animals often have trouble eating foods made for us.
The short answer is; "In small amounts, as a rare treat, not a problem at all. However, don't make it a regular thing or they will get ill (or at the very least fat and lethargic)"
