Notice anything off about the rug in the photograph above? Study the wording carefully. It took a couple of months for employees and visitors to the Pinellas County Sheriff’s Office in Florida to notice that “In Dog We Trust” was printed in place of “In God We Trust.”

Department spokeswoman Cecilia Barreda told the Associated Press a deputy noticed the mistake on the forest green rug placed at the entrance to the office after a couple of months. WFTS-TV reported the $500 rug was in the lobby for only a couple of weeks.

Barreda said the mistake was made by rug manufacturer on only one of the two rugs the department ordered. Maybe the company didn’t spell-check its rug. Or perhaps the problem was that it did. In any case, the rug is being replaced by the manufacturer, and the misprinted rug has been removed from the lobby.
