Understanding Pet Loss with Reagan Pasternak


Reagan PasternakListen to the podcast on iTunes.

If you’re working through pet loss grief or have done so in the past, I want you to know you’re not the only one.

Those first few stages of grief, for a lot of people, are incredibly overwhelming. You’re trying to readjust to a new void in your life. This furry being, who was by your side all the time, is gone. As a result, doing basic daily tasks can be too much. It can be difficult to maintain your work schedule or, if you’re a mom, to be fully present for family duties.

Introducing Reagan Pasternak

In this episode of the Wolfie’s Wish Pet Loss Support podcast, I welcomed Reagan Pasternak, an actress, writer, and creator based in Los Angeles. We discussed her book, “Griffin’s Heart: Mourning Your Pet With No Apologies,” which helps people cope with pet loss.

Join us in this episode where we discuss:

  • Guardians of Being: The spiritual side of pets and their influence in our lives.
  • Writing as Therapy: Reagan discusses how writing about her grief, memories, and feelings helped her untangle her emotions and heal gradually.
  • Grief is an Active Emotion: The grief journey includes embracing the love and memories, not just the pain.
  • Ceremonial Healing: The importance of ceremonial healing practices, like affirmations, candles, and blankets, to honor and remember lost pets.
