The group lined up together at Barnes station, in South West London, where they were then spotted by commuters.
More than 30 thousand people shared the image of the dogs online and posted puns about why they could be waiting after it went viral.
One called the scene a meeting of 'Very Important Puppies,' while another chipped in branding it the 'Andrex puppy reunion.'

But the dogs were gathered on the platform for a photo as part of a charity calendar to raise money for Battersea Dogs and Cats Home.
A total of 26 dogs posed at 13 locations across Barnes, including one shot of a couple enjoying a 'dog date' at the cinema.

Snake found on Canberra light rail
Commuters are being warned to look out for snakes after one was spotted at a Canberra light rail stop. It's unknown what the species of snake was on the tracks, with the Eastern Brown Snake the most commonly seen species in the area.Light rail operators encouraged users to leave snakes alone, and if confronted with one, not to "think of it as a showdown"."Eight species of snakes are known to inhabit the ACT, with five regarded as potentially dangerous to humans," advises the ACT's environmental department.
Anne said: 'Dog owners are such a beautiful lot, so I thought it would be fun to do a calendar and give the proceeds to a dog charity.
'Ours are a pampered much-loved lot and not all dogs are.'
Anne teamed up with fellow dog lovers Sophie Farrah and Tom Farrah-Pearce to plan and shoot the calendar.
The trio chose a range of locations in Barnes, including a park, cafe, greengrocers, as well as the zebra crossing and the train station.
Anne added: 'The dogs were all securely tied to the railings on a platform that's no longer used - so all very safe.
'And commuters took lots of photographs which they then tweeted.'
Public fundraising lead at Battersea, Jo Stone, said: 'Without the fundraising efforts of generous supporters like the Barnes Golden group, we would not be able to care for the thousands of animals that arrive at our three centres each year.
'We are incredibly grateful to everyone who worked on this adorable fundraising project for supporting Battersea in such a fun and creative way and we cannot wait to see the full calendar when it's finished.'
