It was hardly 11 a.m. before the House Commerce committee had gone to the dogs.
Four of them – fluffy canines with perked ears and wide eyes – packed the front row, minding their owners’ strokes and pats with barely a stray wag of the tail.
The occasion was apt enough. The committee was walking through legislation that would allow restaurants to let in dogs from members of the public – an opportunity, the bill’s supporters said, to open up New Hampshire’s eateries to veteran support dogs, companions, and family pets.
