This little piggy has made me smile for years now.
I’m sure he… I mean she… I mean IT has had the same effect on hundreds of others who pass by as they drive down Bridge Street in Downtown Franklin.
In fact, I’ve become so accustomed to “checking out the pig” that I get a little upset when I find that they haven’t changed the pig’s attire in awhile.
I’m so intrigued by what the pig is wearing that I even stop to photograph the darned thing every time now!
Anytime I notice that the Franklin Pig is all dolled up in honor of some occasion, national holiday, or other festive event, I jump out and snap a picture or two for the archives.
Yep. To my knowledge, Franklin Fun Times Guide is the one and only place that has documented such over-the-top pride and prejudice for the Franklin Pig.
What’s So Great About A Silly ‘ol Pig?
Call me crazy…
I mean, I never even liked pigs before this!
But I can’t help but think that little oinker and its owner are just too creative to go unnoticed.
I thought such efforts deserved to be photographed and documented for pig lovers everywhere to browse and admire.
Oh yes, and I’m sure that yard art lovers around the world — and fans of porch critters everywhere — will find hours of enjoyment browsing through the Pig Photogallery (below) as well!
So now, let us pay homage to the Franklin Pig and its multitude of timely get-ups…
I present you with a Pig Photogallery:
This Little Piggy…
…it’s a girl!
…is very smart!
More to come, I’m sure…
Apparently, the time has come for this little piggy to find a new home.

I like to help people find unique ways to do things in order to save time & money — so I write about “outside the box” ideas that most wouldn’t think of. As a lifelong dog owner, I often share my best tips for living with and training dogs. I worked in Higher Ed over 10 years before switching gears to pursue activities that I’m truly passionate about. I’ve worked at a vet, in a photo lab, and at a zoo — to name a few. I enjoy the outdoors via bicycle, motorcycle, Jeep, or RV.
