A Florida sheriff’s office is sending back some official rugs after an embarrassing typo in them put the rug company in the doghouse.

The large green rugs with the black and yellow Pinellas County Sheriff’s Office logo included the phrase “In Dog We Trust” within one of its crests.

It was supposed to read “In God We Trust.” A deputy standing in the lobby spotted the error on Wednesday, according to CNN affiliate WFTS.

The Sheriff’s Office told WFTS that rug manufacturer, American Floor Mats, made the “In Dog We Trust” error. The company will replace them.

The sheriff’s office has tucked the rugs out of sight, but pictures from the CNN affiliate clearly show the mistake.

Pinellas County includes the cities of St. Petersburg and Clearwater.

    I bet it was intentional. Drug dog searches that lead to cash seizures are a huge source of revenue in Florida. Luckily, Utah has laws against that

      really? thats too bad i really had hoped that the money seized during drug raids was being put to use. every dollar they get from drug selling dirt bags is one dollar they dont need from tax payer and law abiding citizen you and me. then where is the money put?
