Welcome to the home of
Topaz Cockers &
Debi Lampert-Rudman's Ceramics!
I have loved cocker spaniels since I was a little girl and first saw the Disney film "Lady and the Tramp".
Parti-color cocker spaniels have shared my home for over 20 wonderful years. They have brought me great joy, introduced me to wonderful friends, brought me to exciting places, and influenced every part of my life, particularly my art.
I am a member of the American Spaniel Club and have been a member of the BreedCare Committee and chaired eye health research programs; am a past Board member and current member of the Cocker Spaniel Club of NJ, and am also a Board member, Publicity Chair, and Match Show Chair for The Morris & Essex Kennel Club - which was named "Show of the Year" as well as its Art Show Chair and 2012 Match Show Chair.
I have my M.Ed. in Children's Literature, love to write, love books, and have won awards for my artwork featuring - of course - dogs.
And, if you're wondering "Why Topaz Cockers?" My birthstone is Topaz and to me cocker spaniels are the most beautiful jewels in the world.
Thanks for stopping by! Step inside to meet some of my past, present and future stars and constant companions.

Pistal was the #1 Parti-color Cocker Spaniel in the first part of 2011 and he is as sweet and special as he is extraordinarily talented at showing.
Pistal and his wonderful handler, Tracy Lynn Carroll, did some thrilling winning on both the East and West Coasts!
Pistal was Winner's Dog and Best of Winners at the 2009 American Spaniel Club's Summer National in Pomona, CA - a dream come true!
Along the way he had several Best in Sweeps wins, Specialty wins and finished his Championship by going Best of Variety over a top special!
Then, he was one of the first 10 parti-color cocker spaniels to ever attain the Grand Champion title!
And, if that wasn't enough, he won Best of Variety at the prestigious 2010 Morris & Essex Kennel Club Show then went on to win Best of Variety at the American Spaniel Club's National Specialty in 2011.
Pistal and Tracy were a phenomenal team!
