in dog we trustPINELLAS COUNTY, Fl. – A Florida sheriff’s office has had a dog-gone bad week, after a rug company made quite the spelling mistake on the office’s officials rugs.

Instead of including the phrase “In God We Trust,” the large green rugs say “In Dog We Trust” inside one of the Pinellas County Sheriff’s Office crests.

Fortunately, the rug manufacturer, American Floor Mats,  says they will replace them, and the sheriff’s department says it’s going to auction the rug off. All proceeds from the auction will be given to a local animal rescue group.

Tampa, St. Petersburg, and Clearwater are all included in Pinellas County .
