How Cancer Shaped Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg’s Life and Work

The name Ruth Bader Ginsburg became almost synonymous with strength and stamina as she rose to prominence in judicial and feminist circles throughout her long career. Famously nicknamed the Notorious RBG and known for her grueling fitness regimen, the late Supreme Court justice also struggled with cancer and other health issues for the better part of her time on the bench — culminating with her death on Sept. 18 at the age of 87 of complications from metastatic pancreatic cancer.Ginsburg’s health issues became public in 1999, six years after her appointment to the Supreme Court, when she had surgery for early-stage colon cancer.

Need to Smile? Watch Magnus the Therapy Dog, Official Best Boy, "Help" His Human Work Out

Let's just establish that there are few things more pure than a dog working out with their human. Case in point: Magnus the Therapy Dog loyally assisting his owner in a solid full-body workout. One 30-second video and we're falling head over heels.

Just watch the clip and look at this good boy: holding knees for situps, giving high fives in between pushups, and hitting downward-facing dog poses like a natural. Magnus's owner, Brian Benson, works out seven days a week with his certified therapy dog by his side, so Magnus gets lots of practice. "Since I bring him to work with me, we are together almost every hour of every day and [are] virtually inseparable," Benson told POPSUGAR. They've been together since Magnus was just one and a half. (He's now almost four!)

The best part about working out with Magnus? "When I lay on the floor to do abs, he will walk or crawl over to me and lie tight by my side," Benson said. Sometimes Magnus will lay his face or whole body on top of Benson, "which makes it hard to do abs!" he said. (We're melting.)

Watch Magnus's full workout above, and if you can't get enough of him, this social media-savvy pup is also active on Facebook and TikTok. And if you just want more adorable dogs working out with their loving humans, check out Ella the yoga-loving golden retriever and Gus the English bulldog, official mascot of his owners' gym.
