Our dog, Cooper, is a special member of the family. He is a buff colored Cocker Spaniel. We adopted him from the humane society back in 2009. He is very sweet and always happy.
Cooper loves to eat. He will eat just about anything. I’ve had put a wire fence around my garden to keep him from eating the produce. He is clever and won’t eat anything until it’s ripe. His favorite is tomatoes. I would not label him as hunger aggressive, but if you leave anything close to the edge of the table he will grab it. We are very careful what we feed him and try to keep him from eating our food. Since Cooper likes human food, I was excited to find Milo’s Kitchen home-style dog treats that look like real food. From meatballs to jerky, they make all sorts of treats that your dog will love.
These home-style dog snack not only look like jerky, sausage slices, and meatballs but they are actually 100% real jerky, sausage slices, and meatballs. Milo’s home-style dog treats are free of artificial flavors or colors and are made in the USA from domestically sourced ingredients. I picked up Milo’s Kitchen home-style dog treats at Meijer.

Cooper’s old dog bed has worn out. Since he is so adorable and is great about being photographed, I decided to put him on Instagram. An Instagram dog bed that is! I created this classic Instagram logo cover to go over a foam cushion which makes up the dog bed.
DIY Instagram Dog Bed
22″ x 22″ x 2″ foam cushion
3/4 yard of beige or tan fleece
22″ x 25″ scrap or 5/8 yard of brown fleece or felt
19″ x 12″ scrap or 3/8 yard of black fleece or felt
scraps of red, yellow, green and blue fleece or felt
sewing machine with black thread
Cut the fabric to get the following:
- 25″ x 25″ square of beige/tan
- (2) 25″ x 16″ of beige/tan
- 25″ x 8.5″ strip of brown
- 13.5″ circle of brown
- 12.5″ circle of black
- 6″ x 6″ square of black
- 6.25″ x 2″ strip of black
- (4) 9″ x 1.5″ strips of each color
Sew the top of the cover first.
Place the brown strip across the top of the beige square and zigzag stitch into place.
Center the black circle on top of the brown circle to create the lens and zigzag in place.Center the lens on the cover with the top edge touching the brown strip and zigzag in place.
Place the black square on the right side of the brown strip and zigzag in place.Lay the colored strips out on the left side of the brown strip and zigzag into place.
Place the black strip across the bottom of the colors and zigzag into place.
The top of the cover is complete.
Lay the cover out with the design up and lay the beige strips on top, matching the side edges and overlapping the edges in the middle.
Straight stitch around the edge to attach the layers. I used a 1/2″ seam allowance.
Turn the cover inside out.
Insert the foam cushion to complete the dog bed.
Look how cute the Instagram logo turned out. My daughter wants me to make a smaller one for a throw pillow in her room. It would be very easy to scale the directions down for a smaller cover.
Treat Your Dog Well!
Cooper does a great job of posing for photos, so we treated him with Duck Jerky and Steak Grillers from Milo’s Kitchen home-style dog treats. The savory Duck Jerky is slow-cooked to bring out the natural flavors. The Steak Grillers are tender strips of real Angus. Nothing says “I love you” more than something made with love and care, which is this Instagram Dog Bed and dog snacks for Cooper.
Who is your special member of the family? Do you post pictures of them on Instagram?
