The Art of Racing in the Rain by Garth Stein
This unique novel is told from the point of view of Enzo, a dog. Denny, his owner and a race car driver, lives a very bittersweet life. Enzo knows Denny's wife Eve is sick long before any of the humans know. After her death from cancer, Denny's life takes some serious twist and turns as he loses custody of his daughter to his rich and self-centered in-laws. Denny is a really good person, who is a great role model. He is so good that Enzo is looking forward to dying after many years because he knows that dogs reincarnate as people. He wants to come back as a race car driver. Read the book to find out what happens in the end.
