Where can I find a pooper-scooper like the one I had that just broke?

Hivemind Dog Owners, I need your help. This morning, while walking the dog and attempting to pick up his "business", my trusty, reliable, pooper-scooper snapped in half! And now I need to replace it, but, I am having no luck in finding an exact replacement for it.
Unfortunately, I do not recall the brand name of the device, and there was nothing printed on it either. Searching the internet has proved fruitless. It was made of plastic, and was blue in color. The best way to describe it would be to compare it to a pair of salad tongs, except that the end parts were triangular in shape, and more like the ends of a set of barbecue tongs. It was small enough to fit comfortably in a coat pocket and the best part of it was that you could use any type of plastic shopping bag with it.
You just put the device in the bag, cupped the bottom of the bag in the ends, and used the handle to scoop the poop up, and you simply turned the bag inside out around the poop and the the device never touches the poop!
The only other detail that I can recall is that I bought it online from a small company that only made this device and it has been about five to ten years since I bought it.
Does this sound familiar to anyone? Unfortunately I threw the device away in a neighborhood trash can without taking a photo of it, and today was Trash Day! Any help would be appreciated. Thanks!
