Due to a typo, a rug in the lobby of the Pinellas County Sheriff’s Office in Largo, Fla., featured the phrase “In Dog We Trust” instead of the classic “In God We Trust.” Whoops.

The $500 piece has been rolled up, put away and will be returned to the manufacturer, according to a spokesperson for the department.
