Remember Chia Pets? ("It's the pottery that grows!") What if you could have an actual Chia Pet? (Emphasis on pet.) If you're one of those people who loves to outfit your dog in cute costumes, this costume will be right up your alley.

The do-it-yourself creation was a top finalist in's 2010 Green Halloween Costume Contest, and we think it's one of the best pet get-ups yet.

Take a look at the instructions, and watch an old Chia Pet commercial below for added inspiration.
