There’s no other pet loss book like Griffin’s Heart—because it’s more than a book—it’s a grief guide / journal / workbook / keepsake all-in-one. Readers actively participate in the healing process through guided journaling, placing photos, practical healing exercises, art & music therapy, and more. When finished, Griffin’s Heart becomes a keepsake filled with memories to honor and remember a life lived. It’s the perfect gift for anyone who is suffering from the loss of a beloved pet and struggling to navigate the grief process.
Griffin’s Heart is the brainchild of actress and author Reagan Pasternak (HBO’s Sharp Objects, HULU’s Being Erica, BET’s Ms. Pat). Reagan tells her own story of loss while offering comfort, insights, and engaging readers to explore their grief and find meaning—with no apologies.

This is one of the best pieces of reading material I have ever gotten my hands on. I’m a licensed marriage and family therapist and recently lost my sweet German shepherd, Dakota. I was validated every step of the way reading. I’ve read through tons of grief material and this is the very best. I wish I could give more than five stars.

Thankful for this book, hopefully will help my friend.
A friend recommended your book to me after my pup passed away. I read the whole thing and did the exercises over 2 days and I want to tell you how much it helped me 🙏🏼 I am still crying but I finally found peace, I finally found an answer that I needed so badly. I will definitely recommend your book to anyone who has lost a pet and is grieving. Thank you ❤️

When my special friend Oakley passed away, Griffin’s Heart came along at exactly the right time. Grief was an enormous reality in my life and Reagan Pasternak’s book guided me through the process. I am very grateful.

Griffin’s Heart is a beautiful tribute to our animal companions. It brought me great comfort and insight while I grieved, and continue to grieve, the loss of my beloved Spike. I highly recommend this book to everyone who holds the heart of their cherished family member.

Our pets give us so much unconditional love that when we lose them it can feel like our world stops. Griffin’s Heart provides a space to honor the loss of our amazing friends and have their memory forever live on if only through our hearts and these pages.

This book is incredible. It reaches down inside yourself into places you didn’t consciously know needed healing. It breaks your heart wide open.

This book is not only a guide on grieving the loss of a pet but is also a comfort blanket full of warmth, sympathy and understanding that helps you cope with a specific type of pain that is often overlooked in society – the pain of losing a non human family member.
