Nine weeks ago, a very tiny star was born.

Her name is Lacey, and she's a miniscule chihuahua from Old Leake, England, who fits into a coat fashioned out of a baby's sock. Yup, you read that right.

Lacey's owner Sharon Johnstone is hoping the little dog, who weighs less than a pound, measures just 6 inches long and has made headlines in the U.K., can nab a very big title – that of Britain's smallest dog.

The pint-sized pooch may fit comfortably inside a small coffee cup, but she's still bigger than Meysi, a puppy born earlier this year in Jarocin, Poland, who measures just 2.75 inches long. The tiny terrier, who is about the size of a can of Coke, could be the world's smallest canine.
