Usually dog and human diseases are species specific (they don't transmit between the two). However dogs can get mutated viruses (I think mono is caused by Epstein Barr virus which is a herpes virus and dogs and cats do get some herpes viruses). If your dog is sleeping more than normal you should take him to a veterinarian. Any unusual symptom that lasts more than 24 hours usually means there is a problem.
