'In Dog We Trust'! Video!

By Robert Paul Reyes

"The Pinellas County Sheriff`s Department has been the subject of some humor this week, since a rug they ordered was misprinted with the phrase, `In dog we trust` rather than the intended, `In God we trust.` While the rug has made the department the subject of some fun-poking, the department has decided to make the best of it, and give dog the glory. That is, they`re holding an auction for the misprinted rug, and they`ll donate the proceeds to a local animal rescue."



I don`t want to sound sacrilegious or blasphemous, but what`s wrong with a rug proclaiming man`s faith in man`s best friend? I think just as many people agree with the message " In dog we trust", as they do with the message " In God we trust."

The Pinellas County Sherriff`s Department should honor the sacred doctrine of the separation of church and state, and keep the In dog we trust rug.

But at least the proceeds from the sale of the rug will go to a good cause.
