In dog we trust - at least in Pinellas County in Florida

The English language has a quirk where the words DOG and GOD are remarkably similar. This has inspired numerous internet memes, and doesn't usually cause any problems. That is, until a rug manufacturer recently got it wrong. 

A sheriff's office in Pinellas County, Florida, intended for their rug to say, "In God We Trust" - the official motto for the state of Florida. Instead, the rug said, "In Dog We Trust." The funny thing is that no one saw the error for two months.

By now, the rug has been replaced, and the misprinted one will be auctioned off for charity. Many dog lovers have already asked to buy it.
