This weekend, I will be introducing a small dog to a big dog. I would rather they not kill each other. Help me.

I'm going to my parents' house for a week and a half. I'm bringing my chihuahua Twinkie, who is, um, not the friendliest dog on the planet (she barks and growls at dogs on the street, visits to dog runs freak her out at first, although after an hour or so she calms down a little). Since our last visit, my parents have gotten a boxer (Smike) who is apparently very calm and good-natured. But I'm terrified Twinkie will get in Smike's face and Smike will go cucko and kill her. What's the best way to do the first introduction? What are some ways I can help everyone get along for a week and a half?
