DOGGONE IT! Sheriff’s office busted with ‘In DOG we trust’ rugs


It would not be fair to say that Florida’s Pinellas County Sheriff’s Office has gone to the dogs, but visitors could have gotten that impression based on two new rugs placed at the front entrance.

The rugs were ordered from American Floor Mats at $500 a pop, and arrived a few weeks ago. But there was a big problem, ABC affiliate WFTS reported.

The rugs had a major typo within one of the crests — instead of “In God We Trust,” the motto read “In Dog We Trust.”

Even more embarrassing, the rugs were placed in the lobby of the Sheriff’s Department administration building several weeks ago and the error was just noticed Wednesday, according to WFTS.

In the age of social media, the screw-up quickly moved beyond Florida’s “Left Coast,” and even garnered international attention. Canada’s National Post, for example, asked if “revenge of the secularists” is at play.

Either way, it seems Florida just can’t catch a break!

Here are a few responses, as seen on Twitter:
