Brittany Bristow on ‘A Tail of Love’
In an exclusive interview with ON TV Today, Bristow poured her views on A Tail of Love.
She was asked if she considers the movie a classic Hallmark movie as it incorporates elements such as rescued dogs and the military. In reply, she first mentioned that she was touched when she read the script.
“It’s such a beautiful story. We all have our different paths that we walk and our different challenges, but this has the common ground of people loving animals and the unconditional support you can get from an animal … and how that affect each and every one of us.”

“It doesn’t matter who you are or what you do: As long as you love them, they’ll love you back,” she added.
As the interview went on, the interviewer asked the actress if she was an animal lover herself. Bristow answered with a yes and said that she had a dog growing up, which made a huge impact on her life.
She continued, “I just loved her with everything I had. When she died, I really felt like a part of my family was gone, and I still miss her. Animals are precious, and it’s up to us to protect them.”
In the end, the Toronto native was asked what she liked the most while working in Hallmark movies. She stated that Hallmark films are meant to make one’s heart swell with happiness no matter what the given movie is about — happiness is the main aim.
Furthermore, she added that the movies are to remind people that there is hope, love, moments for healing, and opportunities for joy. And whatever character she is playing, she loves to be a part of that.
The plot of ‘A Tail of Love’
Speaking more about A Tail of Love, the movie focuses on a dog rescue shelter that Bella runs alongside her grandmother named Lily.
As the story moves on, Bella and Lily get to know that their rescue shelter’s main sponsor, a dog food company, will be sold after the owner’s passing — resulting in their shelter’s funding in danger.
Following the death of the dog food company’s owner, the owner’s son, JR, takes a short leave from his duty as a soldier to attend the company’s sale. It’s there where he meets Bella and her new rescue dog Indie.
Hallmark Channel further explains the story, “While visiting the rescue, JR quickly bonds with Indie, a retired military dog, and continues to stop by to spend time with his new, four-legged friend.”
“When Bella learns that the rescue’s property is also being sold, she turns to JR for help in finding the missing document proving her grandparents purchased the land many years before.”
While doing all that, JR becomes close with Bella – and vice-versa – and they develop feelings for each other. “But JR’s upcoming return to active duty could put a halt to their budding romance.”
