Photos on the Houston Police Department Twitter account showed a line of officers on the northeast side anxiously waiting for Shipley's to open.

Even K9 officer TRex got in on the fun.
"Still waiting," HPD tweeted with a photo of two officers and TRex looking through the front glass window of the donut shop.
And the Fort Bend County Sheriff's Office tweeted to Shipley's asking if they were awake.
"Hey @ShipleyDo_Nuts, you up? Asking for a friend. Your hot glazed can't be beat and we're kind of experts on the subject, you know," the tweet read.
