A popular place for dogs on Davis Islands is going to be closed for awhile.
Plenty of pooches and their owners were taking in the sunshine at Dog Beach today.
Monday it's closing for restoration.
Officials say waves from ships close by have eroded the beach, exposing rocks and making it unsafe.
The plan is to clean it up and put an artificial reef off shore. That should help cut down on the erosion.
The near-by dog park will stay open.
"Dog Beach" should re-open in December.
