Notes and Editorial Reviews
Meet the Delos pets, Lucky and Leo. Lucky (our dog) is sweet and lovable, truly the best of all friends. Leo (our cat) is a ten-year-old tabby, a noble beast indeed. Both probably share much in common with your own pets. Leo loves napping, meowing, stalking, pouncing, kneading, and grooming. Lucky's favorite activities include: excited barking, non-stop panting, and sniffing everything in sight. Whether you consider yourself a cat lover or a dog lover, no one will be able to resist these adorable furballs. Classical music has long been heralded as the most perfect form of entertainment for relaxing, introspection, joyous moments, and as a booster to our ability to focus -- why should this music only be available to humans? It's with this in mind that Delos presents a wonderful collection of classical music to accompany you and your cat or dog during the day's activities.
