See Why a Sheriff's Department May Leave This $500 Rug for the Dogs
No need to hound them. The mistake is being fixed.
The Pinellas County Sheriffs Office in Florida rolled up a $500 rug in the department's lobby today to correct an unusual typo -- because the sheriff's department seal shouldn't really say, "In Dog We Trust."
Though some on social media see the seal as a tribute to dogs on the force, the punny motto was unintentional, Public Information Officer Cristen Smith told ABC News.
A deputy doing security pointed out the typo today to reporter Adam Winer of ABC News affiliate WFTS in Tampa, Florida, just before the rugs were rolled up and taken away.
WFTS in Tampa Bay, Fla. reports that the Pinellas County Sheriff's Office received a new rug with a typo that appears to read, "In Dog We Trust." The misprint was the mistake of the manufacturer American Floor Mats, WFTS reported.
The rug has been in the lobby for the last couple of months, according to a statement from the sheriff's office.
