need help, shutter stopped releasing

I was shooting while playing fetch with my dog and my k5iis suddenly stopped releasing the shutter. When I got inside where it is quiet and tried it there's just a buzzing when I press the button. Anyone know whats going on here?

Thanks.

hmm, this is embarrassing but it seems that there was something obstructing the shutter button. I toyed with it for a bit and noticed that it would only release if I pressed the bottom half of the button, then after a bit more playing it started working normally. That was an extremely weird and disconcerting experience!

by way of an update, after my last post here yesterday I spent another 3 or 4 hours shooting and the camera worked perfectly normally.
