Glaeser's Dominoes

[From Thinking Mathematically, p. 172]

George Glaeser of Strasbourg put a set of dominoes more or less randomly in a flat tray and took a photograph. The exposure was not correct, and although the numbers can be discerned, the positions of the individual dominoes cannot.

Each domino is a rectangle composed of two adjacent squares, each with a number. In the set there is only one domino with each combination of numbers from the numbers 0 through 6. For example, there is one domino with 2,3, and one with 4,4.

Can you reconstruct the dominoes?
