- Toke Makinwa is in the news again
- No, it’s not her book that has brought her to public notice
- It is her pet dog that is responsible for this
Toke Makinwa is one media personality whose name is often embroiled in controversy. NAIJ.com reported the furor that erupted when her book on her marital escapades was published.
This time, it’s her pet dog that has brought another barrage of insults her way. She recently posted a video of Coco her dog wearing a diaper. And as if that wasn’t weird enough, she said it was because Coco was on her period.

A quick search by NAIJ.com revealed that dogs do not menstruate but instead, they go into heat. Petwave.com details exactly what that means below:
“Female dogs do not menstruate in the way that women do. Instead, dogs have an estrous cycle, more commonly called a heat cycle. Sexually mature female dogs go through heat twice, or less commonly once, every year. This usually starts between 9 and 12 months of age, although this varies. Females have heat cycles throughout their lives because, unlike primates, dogs don’t go into menopause as they age. Instead, their heat cycles gradually stretch out in length.”
So dear Toke, dogs do not 'menstruate'.
