I hope someday someone remembers this old dog with kindness and gives me to a puppy.

Well there's your ID then....
That's an older Herters BBill or GE...is it really solid, hard plastic? If you hold it like a football, you can't flex it right?

Right...I mean that it's hollow, but HEAVY duty plastic...very strong. I've got a dozen of them from WAY back...it's a little bit small for a good broad bill, but that's just because the trend has been to go more stout....
