We only thought we had reached peak “Dilly Dilly.”

Now the dogs are involved.

Pet shelters and adoption agencies across the country are hoping that by latching onto Bud Light’s viral catchphrase, they can help find homes for a few dogs over the holiday season.

Here are just a few of the listings for dogs named Dilly Dilly, or just Dilly, for short, who are available for adoption right now, and want to be true friends of the crown (in this case, that’s you, Your Highness).

The first, pictured above, is a husky mix from Columbus, Ga. He’s just over four years old and was taken in Nov. 28.

He seems like the type that just might be able to learn “Dilly Dilly” tricks like this one:

The next two “Dilly Dilly” pups are available in Texas. Central Texas’ Blue Dog Rescue has a good girl who is a 4-month-old terrier mix and is friendly with big kids and with other dogs.

A little farther south, in Beaumont, the Humane Society of Southeast Texas has another “Dilly Dilly,” this time a female Shepherd mix puppy.

Up in North Texas, Second Chance SPCA in Plano has an adult male Norfolk Terrier mix named with the singular “Dilly.” Canine Rescue Coalition in Glendale, Ariz. has a female lab mix with the same name, too.

Clearly, as soon as people started using the silly phrase from the catchy beer ads as an exclamation or a greeting, people of all walks of life got on board with the lingo.

Now these dogs, even the older ones, have learned the new trick as well.

But whichever one you choose, when you have a dog named “Dilly Dilly,” you have to accessorize correctly. Take a hint from Twitter user @maeee_maee:

If you can't count on a friend to bring Bud Light to the Pit of Misery, then that's not a friend you can count on.

Bud Light apparently didn't appreciate a Minnesota craft brewery trying to name a new beer Dilly Dilly Mosaic Double IPA. It sent a town crier to make a special request.
