Did anyone notice a glaring typo in Under the Dome by Stephen King?

In Stephen King's new novel Under the Dome, there is a character that is the editor of the local paper. She has a dog named Horace. The dog was named after the first owner of the newspaper, Horace Greely. When she is first contacted by Col. Cox, it seems the dog's name changes to Hector for a few pages. Did anyone else notice this?

    I hadnt noticed this. I guarantee you that there is nothing to spoil about the name mistake. It definitely must have been a mistake since there are no characters even mentioned named Hector. Normally I would pick up on that, but I guess I missed it too. Nice eye!
