To Oz, he has passed on the steely independence of the proud canine, teaching him that "he's his own dog" and not to conform to anthropomorphic stereotypes (ie do as he's told). Murph actually studied briefly under a certain Springer called Mrs Poll to refine these techniques.
To Lily, he passed on the need to focus, particularly relating to rabbits, hares, cats and deer. She is now ready to take up the baton of covering a whole field in 9 seconds flat, but only, of course, in one direction.
Here's a couple of pics of Mr Murph - I only wish he'd passed onto me the knack of writing original and witty posts.
