(CNN) — A Florida sheriff’s office is sending back some official rugs after an embarrassing typo in them put the rug company in the doghouse.

The large green rugs with the black and yellow Pinellas County Sheriff’s Office logo included the phrase “In Dog We Trust” within one of its crests.

It was supposed to read “In God We Trust.” A deputy standing in the lobby spotted the error on Wednesday, according to CNN affiliate WFTS.

The Sheriff’s Office told WFTS that rug manufacturer, American Floor Mats, made the “In Dog We Trust” error. The company will replace them.

The sheriff’s office has tucked the rugs out of sight, but pictures from the CNN affiliate clearly show the mistake.

Pinellas County includes the cities of Tampa, St. Petersburg and Clearwater.
