    You should be able to drag it off and let it "poof" and disappear
    Normally the link is broken or the app has been deleted
    Drag the icon from the App folder back to the dock to restore

    even just logging out/in should restart the dock.

    i tried all that, but i just found the solution on the another forum:

    Delete com.appledock.db and com.apple.dock.plist and then restart the mac.

    Thanks for all the answers

    Yeah, I'm sure that's where the others who responded were headed. But, it's always good to try the simple stuff first.
