Question description

CHAPTER 8 - Contracts for the Sale of Goods 

CHAPTER 21 - Consumer Protection Law 

You go to Pets 'R Us and buy an 8 week old puppy (if you don't like dogs, you buy a type of pet you do like) for $1,000. You have the puppy for six months and the Vet tells you that the puppy needs major corrective surgery that will cost $5,000. You go back to Pets 'R Us and demand a refund. They agree, but, per the terms of your contract, they demand that you return the puppy in order to receive your refund. 

Please answer the following questions: (ANSWER 2 QUESTIONS TONIGHTS, THE REST FOR TOMORROW)

1. Why is requiring the return of the puppy so reasonable? What does "unconscionable" mean anyway? 

2. What evidence would you present that the term was unreasonable?

3. Why does the UCC treat merchants and non-merchants differently?

4. People can grow attached to a lot of things, why is a puppy so different? What if it was a pet cobra?

5. What about having to return the animal is not right nor reasonable? If your TV is defective, do you get to keep it and get a new one?

6. Why shouldn't the pet store have to pay to have the surgery?
