I think I’ve finally found my “porch pig”!…
You may recall that I’ve had my eye out for that perfect one-of-a-kind figurine or statue to grace the front porch of our new log home.
Since I don’t want anything too “tacky”, I honestly didn’t think I’d ever be able to find something cute, fun, and classy.

I know, I know… it’s borderline goofy. But done just right, I think it could work.
In case you’re wondering, these Dog Welcome Statues are 20 inches high and they’re handcrafted of resin and metal for year-round durability. The sign can be engraved with any message on 2 lines, up to 10 characters per line. The cost is $39.95 from PersonalCreations.com. UPDATE: It looks like that one’s no longer available, so here’s a similar dog statue from Lowes.

Other Dog Porch Statues
If this dog statue were a little bit taller (it’s only 10 inches high), it would be completely adorable on the porch of our new log home!
The fact that the dog is holding a lantern in its mouth is just too cute… and very unique.
Here are a few more cute dog welcome signs I found:
