About a year ago my dog was very sick ,took him to vet and he said dog had some kind of virus.Since he was sick ,i notice him when he is lying around or sleeping with his tongue sticking out.My question is why sometimes just a little of his tongue other times he has his whole tongue out of his mouth.

It sounds like your dog is behaving normally. Many dogs sleep with the tip of their tongue exposed. Others let their tongue hang out to the side.
Sometimes it has to do with the temperature. If it's hot letting the tongue hang out is a cooling method. But often it just happens for no discernible reason.
