Subject: Ordinal numbers in first grade

What is the correct way to teach counting with ordinal numbers? If you have pictures in a row, do you always start counting from the left or does it matter which way the pictures are facing? For example, if you have a row of dogs and they are all facing to the right, do you start counting the first one on the right or on the left?
