About Belleville Show Kennels
Cathy Thompson-Morgan has owned Norfolk terriers since the late 1980's as pets.
She enjoyed them so much that she decided she would like to breed from her pets. Having reared her first litter in the early ‘90s, and being a responsible person, Cathy thought that she should know more about them prior to breeding another litter.
After some research into the breed she joined the Norfolk Terrier Club and attended shows and most importantly talked to experienced breeders and investigated pedigrees. The result was a Champion in her second litter, Ch Belleville Cloudscape. Cloudscape went on to produce Ch Belleville Cloudvoyager who is behind all future Belleville Champions except for his mother and siblings.
The Belleville affix was registered with The Kennel Club in 1994 after the name of the house in which Cathy lived at the time.
To date Cathy has won over 300 CC's, made up 42 Norfolk Terrier Champions, 12 Norwich Terrier Champions and 3 Portuguese Water Dog Champions. Others have become champions overseas.
Four different Belleville Norfolks have won 6 Groups between them and a Reserve Best in Show at All Breed Championship Shows in the UK. Several others have won Group Placings.
The Norfolk Ch Belleville Sweet Nothings won Group 2 at Crufts in 2004 having also been Best of Breed and Best Puppy in Breed at Crufts in 2003. Her father Ch Belleville Smart Alec was BOB at Crufts in 2002 and her son Ch Belleville Rumour Nothing did it in 2008.

In 2013 his half sister Ch Belleville Honey Nut Crunch was BOB and in both 2014 and 2015 his son Ch Belleville Seduction was BOB.
In September 2008 Portuguese Water Dogs were added to the kennel. Ch Hooligan Meia Noite at Belleville was imported from Arja Koskelo in Finland.
