News flash! Miniature horses now dogs under the ADA

The U.S. Department of Justice’s “Final Rule” went into effect March 15th, 2011, revising and adding some regulations that affect the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA).

One such change is particularly interesting.  The ADA has now:

  1. ruled that the term “service animals” will be rigidly defined as dogs only.
  2. provided the exception that miniature horses can serve as “service animals.

Therefore, miniature horses are now dogs under the ADA.

Also, Segways must be permitted in all areas open to pedestrian use (I’m thinking Gob Bluth lobbied for this one.)
